Verdict

None of these can be easily dismissed but it could pay to stick with the progressive ESTEBSAAL on his handicap debut. He won his maiden at Nottingham by seven lengths and this longer trip should hold no fears for John Dunlop's colt. Handsome Ransom had an off-day at Kempton last time but had scored at the same track before that while Misdemeanour will find life easier in this lower grade handicap. Al Baidaa was beaten only a length at Wolverhampton last week while Debating Society and the less-exposed Mawhub are others to consider.
