Verdict

Those housing leading form claims also have a doubt or two to overcome as Harry Bosch has a 275-day absence to deal with and six of Scottish Glen's seven successes have been delivered at his beloved Lingfield, whilst he too has been off the track for some time. Both cannot be written off due to persuasive form claims but GRACIOUS GEORGE is a value option. He's looked rather in the grip of the assessor but landed a decent enough Sandown handicap last August off just a 2lb higher mark on the forecast ground and remains in solid form. Breakheart needed his reappearance but has a good record with Jack Garrity up and likes the ground, whilst Speedy Writer has shown glimmers of maiden promise prior to this handicap bow.
