Verdict

New Direction wasn't able to land the four-timer here last time but has been given a break since and could easily make his presence felt now on return to action. U S Navy Seal is also entitled to do better now upped in trip having shaped well on stable debut at this track in November while Ciankyle is fit from jumping and has threatened to score on the AW before. Tommy Welsh showed some degree of promise on his first handicap start here while Bottleofsmoke wasn't beaten far over C&D last month but isn’t the most reliable so instead ASIAN WING is taken to go one better than when second over track and trip three weeks ago. He was only just worn down in the closing stages then and the winner has since gone on to defy a 6lb rise to score over C&D so the form looks decent and he may be able to gain compensation. 1. Asian Wing 2. New Direction 3. Tommy Welsh
