Verdict

ASIFA got off the mark with a win at Warwick in September and the form has been boosted by the subsequent victory of the runner-up Intuition. He looks up to scoring on his handicap debut and makes more appeal than stablemate Abhaath, who keeps finding at least one too good. Cresta Star opened her account on the Polytrack last time, but the three horses immediately behind have let the form down since and Rocky Reef could prove a bigger threat having gone close at Wolverhampton last month. Atlantis Crossing won a nursery at the same track last week, but this is tougher.
