Verdict

SATWA MOON does not look to be the best handicapped horse in the world but we know that he handles the surface and having exhibited a reasonable level of form at this track in the past, we are happy to put him up as the selection today. Buddy Holly is taking a leap in the dark as far as the trip is concerned though it is interesting that connections have elected to continue in search of it. Foxhaven won a claimer at Newbury though was much better grade than this before infirmity stopped him seeing the racecourse. Incendo was hammered by the handicapper for victory at Leicester and might need some respite. Clear Reef is better known on the all-weather surfaces but he does stay much further than this 1m4f trip and it would be no surprise the hold up performer plugging on at the death. Powerful Melody is open to improvement.
