Verdict

Despite the steadier of top weight, SARPECH may prove good enough now encountering better ground than when fading late on over C&D last time out. In a modest contest, David John might improve for the change of scenery on his first start for his new trainer and could make a race of it, while you couldn't completely rule out a return to form for The Way You Dance, for whom their appears a significant jockey booking. The rest have plenty of work to do to get into the shake-up.
  1. Sarpech
