Verdict

Alpha Tauri has won six times in 50 starts, all on this track including a claimer on Tuesday. He's virtually guaranteed to run his race and get involved. Pravda Street is another arriving in winning form having scored at Wolverhampton last week but he's only had one run on the surface. Delightful Sleep has had 27 starts on the all-weather but none of them here so the vote goes to MIAMI GATOR. Karl Burke's charge has won ten races in his time but only run twice at this track with a close second to Our Ivor in February pointing to his chances. Staff Sergeant landed a maiden on the track on only his second racecourse appearance in 2010 but has never been back.
