Verdict

THEATRE LEGEND signalled he's ready to go close again when fifth at Perth and he can capitalise on an attractive mark with Brian Hughes also an eye-catching booking in the saddle. Paddy's Motorbike is another weighted to have a big say, with taking Kempton scorer Dorking Boy also firmly in the picture in an open handicap.
