Verdict

The unbeaten HAFTOHAF is worth sticking with here. He followed up a debut victory at Wolverhampton with victory in a handicap at the same track and there should be more to come. Gabrial's Gift ran a shocker behind the selection before scoring at Lingfield and a 6lb penalty may be his undoing while Atlantis Crossing is 9lb higher than his win at Wolverhampton in September. Exceedexpectations, Travelling and Abhaath were all placed on their latest starts but Lingfield maiden winner Polar Venture makes more appeal on his handicap debut as he's more likely to improve.
