Verdict

ALPHA TAURI is difficult to oppose in this. He made all to win a similar event over 7f here last month and Frank Sheridan's gelding looks likely to get his own way up front once again. Elusive Warrior found El Dececy too good here on Tuesday but Nora Looby's 7lb claim will help today's cause, though he still has plenty to find with the selection on earlier running. General Tufto and Crocodile Bay are struggling for form, while Bajan Pride has a bit to find at the weights on his return from a lay-off.
