Verdict

Masamah won last year's inaugural running off a lower mark when beating Racy and Zero Money. He should go well again but found DEMORA too good at Musselburgh last month. That was the latter's first run of the year so he gets the nod with further progress expected. A Listed winner last year, Morawij could also figure and makes more appeal than the progressive Intrinsic, raised a further 6lb for landing a hat-trick when successful at Goodwood. Robot Boy is another enjoying a winning streak but he has a 9lb hike to contend with and Lancelot Du Lac is better over 6f. B Fifty Two, Milly's Gift and Sandfrankskipsgo all won lower grade sprints last time while Top Boy was engaged to run at York yesterday.
