Verdict

Looking On will have needed his comeback run at Windsor and has shown more than enough to suggest he could win a race at this level. All of Blue Deer's recent runs have been on the Polytrack, however, and he's trying a new trip this evening while COLINCA'S LAD carries a penalty for last weeks' win here over 1m4f. But we shouldn't overlook the fact that the 10-year-old is a regular winner in this grade and Rosie Jessop's claim accounts for half of the extra. He can go in again as Standpoint is much better on the all-weather and Cantor is still a couple of pounds higher than his most recent win, though is unexposed on Turf.
