Verdict

After a winning start at Haydock, ZARAEE couldn't quite cope with Andhesontherun at Doncaster where he appeared to be feeling the firm ground. The winner is well thought of and William Haggas' charge can return to winning ways. Hatha Hooh made all for a very easy victory over 5f at Bath and will take some catching around here and Intermath found Group 2 level beyond him at Newmarket after a winning debut at Salisbury then unshipping his rider when travelling well there. Cool Bahamian stepped up to Listed company last time and did well enough though a double penalty makes things tough and Bounty Hunter didn't have much to beat at Ffos Las.
