Verdict

This is a moderate contest to end a tremendous card. PASAKA BOY easily won a Newbury nursery over 7f before finding Listed company too hot over the same C&D and back in this grade looks the one to be on. Blackdown Spirit hasn't progressed since winning on heavy ground at Ffos Las but Tommy's Secret has been running well enough though his one poor run came on heavy ground. Melbourne Memories didn't enjoy the firm ground at Bath after his Lingfield victory but Ovett will be tackling this sort of going for the first time after scoring over the minimum trip at Lingfield. Johnny Murtagh's presence on Don Eduardo is interesting and Stan Moore's charge could provide each-way value.
