Verdict

A winner in France, Gangster Squad made a promising start for Martyn Meade at Yarmouth and should figure. Billy Blue and Bayre found only one too good at Windsor on their latest starts and can get involved but this is tougher than the race Censorius won at Lingfield last time. Arbaab may well be capable of better, but BISHOP OF RUSCOMBE needed only to be pushed out to record a four length win over 1m2f here back in March. Andrew Balding's colt gets the nod to make a winning return.
