Verdict

Lastkingofscotland scored at Wolverhampton earlier this month and the drop back into this grade should see him thereabouts at the finish. Lutine Charlie is weighted to go close on today's terms though is struggling to find his best form, but dual Polytrack winner Joe Le Taxi is dropped in class for his return to Mark Johnston's yard after a couple of poor efforts in America. SAHARIA won over a longer trip in October and stood little chance with higher-rated rivals in a claimer at Wolverhampton last week. This looks easier and he gets the nod to return to winning ways.
