Verdict

Hanseatic was only beaten a neck at Windsor on his reappearance. He's gone up 3lb since but has had just the two starts so far and can't be ignored. Significant Move won easily at Windsor last month but is ideally suited by much softer ground while course and distance winner Now My Sun has looked a few pounds too high in the handicap so far this year. All Annalena has been hurdling and that's probably where Eurystheus' future lies having joined Paul Nicholls. MUHARRER must have needed his reappearance at Doncaster as that run was too bad to be true. He still has a bit of scope and could be the value here.
