Verdict

Paddocks Lounge easily beat Golan Dancer on heavy going at Leicester last month and will appreciate a drop back to selling company. But the runner-up is now 12lb better off and should get a lot closer today. TAURIAN drops into the lowest grade for the first time having had a couple of runs on the all-weather since disappointing at Fakenham in December. Her yard is bang in form and the quicker surface will suit so she is fancied to come out on top. Craiganee led for a long way over further at Taunton last time so looks best of the rest.
