Verdict

A very tough handicap the get the gauges of, preference is for ROIBEARD to come to fruition in a career blighted by injuries. The seven-year-old has proven to be effective at this distance in the past and was narrowly denied on his return. The rise in the handicap isn't enough to be deterred from him putting in another solid effort. The same can be applied to Aared, who fared better than the result suggested on his comeback from a lengthy absence and has the help of a 5lb claimer on board. Will Be King has shown signs of significant progression but the handicapper may have his measure now, while the likes of Dalileo and Lariat cannot be ignored given their yard's hot form this season.
