Verdict

ATLAS can make a winning handicap debut in this sphere following some promising efforts on the Flat. The selection has forecast underfoot conditions to suit and can see off last time out winner Like A Diamond who is taken to finish runner-up. Third place can go the way of Neddyvaughan who ran well to place on his most recent appearance.
