Verdict

This is very winnable, and if the slight step up in trip brings out a bit more in BLUE APRIL then he's unexposed enough to think he can take this. That was a much better effort at Exeter last time and if he's held onto a bit longer here, can get on the scoresheet. Squeeze Me went well here in late March and a repeat of that puts her on the premises, and if the headgear does the trick for Texas Forever a better effort can be expected.
