Verdict

Professor found life tough in Listed company at Goodwood but is not out of this on his handicap bow and the more exposed Pay Freeze has also been keeping good company. Jollification is another dropped in class who could figure while Sejalaat beat the re-opposing Normal Equilibrium at Goodwood last time and should be thereabouts at the finish. African Oil won on the Turf at Lingfield and further progress is expected from him as well as BRAZEN. The latter was sent off odds-on at Folkestone last month but never gave his supporters a moment's worry with an effortless six-length victory and he gets the vote on his handicap debut with William Buick taking over the reins.
