Verdict

Frustrating though he has proved to be of late, NAUTICAL HAVEN is given another chance to win his first handicap in the hope that cheek pieces will help to nudge him home in front. Check the market for signs of a revival from the former Group 2-placed Afandem on his first outing for Mark Johnston, as he would be very well treated on that sort of form. Upavon may again have to settle for minor honours, with Rose Berry and Union Rose others of interest, though also with questions to answer.
