Verdict

A tight handicap made even more difficult with doubts surrounding all the runners. PROOFREADER gets the speculative vote to put a poor effort in October behind him having shown lots of promise when making a winning debut at Newmarket. Las Verglas Star has claims but today's fast ground tempers enthusiasm and Sirvino has won just the once since 2009. Warlu Way never figured on his debut for Mick Easterby and would prefer a longer trip but Brighton winner Sheikhzayedroad has conditions to suit on his first outing since September. San Cassiano didn't take to hurdling for Ferdy Murphy but looks the type Ruth Carr does so well with now back on the Flat.
