Verdict

The Dascombe yard is looking to land this for the third time in succession with Don Sigfredo. The latter went close over 5f here last time with Anonymous John behind but has yet to race over this longer trip. IZZTHATRIGHT is just preferred given he won his handicap debut when successful over 6f at Catterick and this looks no tougher. The Dapper Tapper came good when making all on the Polytrack at Lingfield last month but similar tactics could leave him vulnerable to a late finisher in this.
