Verdict

The Name Is Frank looks almost guaranteed to run his race again with his pilot removing some useful weight and while we respect the chances of Athaakeel after her victory last time we are going to make our play with YANZA, who has been hammering on the door in his last two efforts. After finding just one too good on his last two starts including off this mark last time the pick is entitled to go one better here on his return to the venue of his only victory to date. The Name Is Frank is nothing if not consistent having made the frame in his last five starts. That sequence includes a victory two runs back and with his jockey removing five pounds from his load he's still bang in the picture. Athaakeel scored well in a seller last time and based on that run is potentially well weighted on her return to handicap company but it's not a given. Shakespeare's Son should be seen to better effect now dropping back to this trip and is one to considered for a place and Forest Dane has bits and pieces of form to suggest a challenge is in the offing. A tough end to the night with Yanza the percentage call.
