Verdict

Shostakovich went close over a longer trip here last week and should be thereabouts again, while Dead Cool is now back on the same mark as when scoring at Salisbury back in June. A repeat of Yahafedh Alaih's earlier second at Yarmouth would put him in contention, but the vote goes to ROMAN STRAIT. He's not exactly prolific, with just the single win to his credit, but nearly caught the winner when runner-up at Wolverhampton last month with Fantasy Fighter well behind and now looks ready to strike again.
