Verdict

It's hard to make a strong case for any of these. Hidden Link has gone backwards since scoring at Wolverhampton in January and Tebbit was well beaten in a claimer on his recent return to action. Limoges finished a bit closer on her latest start but Warrant Officer posted another poor effort last time. Marmot Bay was engaged to run here yesterday and the speculative vote goes to MUDAAWEM. He has to be forgiven a below par run at Wolverhampton last month but gets another chance dropping down a grade today.
