Verdict

Cruiser was ending a long losing run when scoring at Kempton last time but is dropped in class here and could go close again. SAM SHARP is also dropping down a couple of grades having finished a close second at Sandown last time. He looks capable of taking advantage with Jamie Spencer booked to ride. Dozy Joe, Good Authority and Ree's Rascal have teed themselves up nicely for this with recent placed efforts on the Polytrack while Mubtadi and John Biscuit have claims on the best of last year's form.
