Verdict

The previously disappointing PORTWAY FLYER drew clear of an admittedly modest field at Doncaster on Friday and a penalty shouldn't prevent a follow-up if he's in the same mood. Motou won in a lower grade at Southwell last month but the runner-up has let the form down since. He may also need a stiffer test than this while Moscow Me's hat-trick bid hit a wall at Huntingdon last month, though he might have needed the run. Take The Mick showed little on his return but that was only his fifth start under Rules and he may have more to offer.
