Verdict

Glenridding has the inside stall and will ensure there is no hanging about here. Majestic Dream won at Wolverhampton on his final start of 2012 and is still well treated on his best form while Pravda Street was also in good form on the Polytrack in the autumn and shouldn't be discounted. Bassett Road and Rio Cobolo have had a recent run while Sandy Lane hasn't finished out of the first two in his last four starts, though is still climbing the weights. SARDANAPALUS has a touch of class at this level and still doesn't look badly treated despite winning over this trip at Thirsk on his final run of last year. This is a similar track and he can make a successful reappearance.
