Verdict

TOOREEN LEGEND has a long absence to overcome since just failing to catch Ancient Sands over the course and distance in October. The winner went on to complete a four-timer and Tommy Stack's charge is taken to go one better. Landau completed a Polytrack double for Sylvester Kirk in October before joining Gordon Elliott, who reverts him back to the Flat after three poor runs over hurdles. Senyuman shot up the weights after completing a double at the turn of the year and is looking a few pounds high while Knight's Parade is still a maiden on the surface. Papabili has only had three starts and improved with each. He makes his handicap debut from a lowly mark and any significant support should be noted.
