YOUR GIFTED is still winless in twelve outings but as a result has dropped to what looks like a winnable mark, while both Sir Louis and Vilnius are taken seriously and should be monitored in the betting market. The selection was struggling to find his form running off a rating as high as 71 over in Ireland but he showed a decent level of form off a three pound higher mark on the all weather at Wolverhampton last week. He looks well treated and has coped well in the past in soft conditions so with that in mind he ought to go close. Sir Louis comes from a yard that are on fire at present and has his first run in a handicap off a mark of just 55. He did not achieve a great deal in his three outings last year but with another year on his back he should be stronger for it and any market moves should be noted. Vilnius came to hand after wining two races back in November. Her form since has not been great but the handicapper has dropped her a few pounds which allows her to enter calculations on her best form. Your Gifted is the most interesting on paper and is given the narrow vote.
