Verdict

Mootabar may be still out of the handicap despite two latest successes but it would be folly to ignore the Fairhurst inmates' obvious claims here. The grey does need to show that recent level of form on these faster conditions though and others make stronger appeal. The choice falls upon MY IDEA, who will definitely relish the return to a quicker surface, is suited by the trip and continues to perform at a solid and consistent level. A major danger could be Almutaham. Both career wins arrived on good ground and his most recent success came here just over a year ago. Martin Todhunter has clearly been waiting for the winter ground to disappear as this is his charge's first run since November and he's a danger to all if ready to roll after his break. Makhzoon is also respected despite topweight.
