A race with many doubts and SUNSET BOULEVARD is the call at the likely odds with Theocritus and Clear Sailing among the dangers. Tor Sturgis's charge has a few pounds to find with the principals though has got the strong suit of stamina in his favour. With doubts about the others on that score, we are prepared to chance our arm on this occasion. Theocritus was last seen out when landing a seller at Wolverhampton. He is noted for bleeding so that has to be a consideration when getting involved though if he gets the trip, he more than has the ability to land this prize. Clear Sailing has become something of a standing dish around here over ten furlongs. He failed to stay 1m6f when tried over that distance so the jury is out. Fantasy Ride has plenty to find on the formbook but could not totally be ruled out of the places given Jeff Pearce's form. Womaniser was quickly jettisoned from the Luca Cumani yard and is still winless since joining Tom Keddy. Not a race to linger too long over and Sunset Boulevard can make his stamina count.
