Verdict

Diaktoros has gone close in both starts at Wetherby and Newbury and certainly deserves a change of luck. This could be his big opportunity but we're inclined to give another chance to GEORGIAN FIREBIRD as she won well at Catterick last month and was far from disgraced back there under a penalty next time when the winner was probably allowed too much rope out in front. Palm Grey was only headed close home on his debut at Catterick and is another worth a second look while Kempton third Bennachie should strip fitter here. Oleohneh won on debut at Newcastle in January but has gone backwards since and is now tried in headgear.
