Verdict

Another tough race to call as Quest For More could probably do with some help from the handicapper. Astra Hall is still climbing the weights, despite not winning, and Noble Gift has been treading water off his current mark. Xinbama is in form, however, and only 3lb higher than when scoring at Leicester last month. We'll take a chance on FROM FROST translating his Fibresand form to Turf as he's won both starts with the minimum of fuss and has more scope than his rivals. Deepsand is held by Astra Hall on York running in May and Mr Gallivanter still has a bit to prove over this trip but old Nanton could play a part as he's sure to have benefited from his belated reappearance at York and has gone well here in the past.
