Verdict

AERODYMAMIC only won an amateurs' event at Beverley last week but that's still better form than most of these have managed of late. He gets the nod to follow up. Mixed Message has come up short in similar company recently but should be thereabouts again while Moral Issue went close to ending a long losing run when second at Carlisle last time. Thatcherite also showed signs of a resurgence when runner-up at Catterick a week ago, though he's upped a grade for this.
