Verdict

Sophisticated Heir scored at the first time of asking for his new yard. But he seemed well suited by 7f and soft ground at Leicester and faces different conditions here. I'm Super Too is 9lb higher than when scoring over track and trip in May, while Ralphy Boy and Sir Guy Porteus were both beaten off higher marks last time having won their penultimate starts. TED'S BROTHER scored over course and distance last month and can effectively race off a lower mark with Ali Rawlinson's allowance taken into account. He gets the vote to return to winning ways.
