Verdict

This looks to be a match between the top pair on the card, and there doesn't appear to be a lot between WHOSHOTWHO and Gustave Mahler. The selection won very easily here in maiden company and, going up in trip, may be able to make the 6lb he receives count. Richard Johnson's mount meanwhile is going up in distance and showed a real determination to battle despite defeat at Worcester in his hat-trick bid last time. The remaining quartet have very little going for them, Irish import Fifty Shades perhaps having some scope for better in new surroundings.
