It's difficult to know what to make of Taylor Said, a prolific winner on Dirt in the USA back in 2012 though not on the major tracks. Mickael Barzalona has opted to ride Dragon Falls for his stable and the Deauville Fibresand winner will be better for his run behind Eastern Rules a fortnight ago where he was noted making late headway. Intrigo also represents Charlie Appleby and he will have found 1m2f stretching his stamina last time after a very promising debut here. Mustaheel has gone well in his last two starts and as they were both over a trip too short he's expected to carry his big weight with distinction. Disa Leader has had his last eleven runs on this track and is rarely beaten far. He's gradually slipping to a winnable mark and Jonny Geroudis gets on well with him. STRING THEORY is handed the vote in a wide-open contest as he won a 1m1f handicap at Wolverhampton on Boxing Day and made a very promising start here over an extra furlong when runner-up to Ottoman Empire. This shorter trip won't be a problem. Banna Boirche has won nine races in his career and will have come on for his run a couple of weeks ago, his first since August.
