Verdict

Solid Air appeared to need every yard of the 1m3f when scoring here last March and may find this on the short side. SAMOLLIE is ideally at home over the trip and had the pace to score over 7f last month so he should prove good enough in a weak handicap. Alvar is another who can be relied on to do his best over the distance and looks well enough handicapped but Matjar has yet to find his form this season. Black N Brew has won just once from 25 starts on the surface and Hootie has never reached a place here.
