Verdict

Hayek never seems to run a bad race, though is now on a career-high mark. Last Destination won over this trip at Beverley last month while it would be no surprise to see Satwa Laird bounce back from a below-par effort at Newbury 11 days ago as he's 3lb lower here. Save The Bees finished last at Goodwood on Friday, however, and gets little respite from the handicapper while Rex Romanorum was put up 6lb after winning at Pontefract, though probably has more scope than the majority of these. HORATIO CARTER won easily over C&D last month and his latest sixth at Thirsk was a rare poor run. Weighted to reverse Carlisle running with Hayek, he has the cheekpieces back on and can bounce back to winning ways with Danny Tudhope preferring the top weight to stablemate Count Bertoni.
