Verdict

The form of Afaak's final start last term was well and truly franked when Addeybb put the Lincoln field to the sword last month, his credentials are clear on that showing, though the market will reflect that. Born To Be Alive was a good scorer himself on Town Moor last time while Tony Curtis should be suited by the helter-skelter of this contest. Elusive Heights has the potential to get involved on first start for his new connections but it might be worth forgiving BALLARD DOWN a poor run in the Lincoln. He sluiced home at Newmarket on just his third start on turf last summer and wasn't exactly well drawn last time. There could easily be more to come.
  1. Ballard Down
  2. Afaak
  3. Elusive Heights
