Verdict

Unsurprisingly plenty arrive with claims, including Paul Midgley's SALUTI. A 4-time winner of sprint handicaps last year, he ran well when third from this mark on return at Beverley 17 days ago and, with the forecast strong pace to aim at right up his street, he may well be up to defying this mark. Muscika back on turf, Khabib and Music Society are just a trio of others to consider.

  1. SALUTI (IRE)
