Verdict

A revival from Jarrow beckons (probably when well-backed) however a safer bet might be MARK ANTHONY. Kevin Ryan's gelding should relish the return to six furlongs today and his experience of the track is in his favour. As it is for Tasmeem who is fairly-handicapped, whilst Pepper Lane and Amenable are both in rude health but as a result each is probably high enough in the weights. Blinkers are swapped for a visor on Flaneur, and along with the well-handicapped Thrust Control he rates a bigger threat than the in-and-out Besty. Jarrow is edging down the handicap and a bold run would come as no surprise as he drops in grade.
