Verdict

An trappy affair for punters where MUTAFAAKIR appears to be the percentage call. The former John Gosden inmate had been struggling to realise any of his juvenile form since joining Ruth Carr, but the penny appears to have finally dropped and a 5lb rise in the weights for his debut success at Catterick does not appear unduly harsh. Sunrise Dance seems to go well for an apprentice rider and the Thirsk winner has a useful claimer in Jason Hart aboard on this occasion. Connor Beasley, who rode on that occasion, is forced to switch his allegiances to Commanche Raider, but it might not be bad news for the rider as the six-year-old shaped encouragingly over 5f at Haydock last week. Evanescent makes a debut for John Quinn having left Alan McCabe and the lightly-raced four-year-old is no forlorn hope off top-weight.
