Verdict

Having completed a double on fast ground, Disavow finished last when tackling softer going over this course and distance though it was in a much higher class event than this. Guilty has been improving and made a successful handicap debut here when seeing off the odds-on Panda Spirit. Azraff produced his best run on fast ground at Leicester and doesn't look badly treated for his handicap debut while Persun has also been bogged down in her last two starts. SPRING OFFENSIVE showed promise despite running green at Hamilton and looked more the finished article when beating a couple of decent rivals at Redcar - Richard Fahey's expensive purchase can complete the double. Mywayalways would have finished closer at Salisbury last time but for being impeded.
