Verdict

Toulouse Express hasn't been able to take advantage of a tumbling mark lately and Bob Johnson's veteran probably isn't the force of old. It was a weak contest which Wishes Or Watches won at Plumpton last month while the drop in trip may catch out Ffos Las runner-up Run To Fly. BAJAN SUNSHINE couldn't follow up his Plumpton win off this mark at Fontwell last week but only weakened in the closing stages. He continually lost ground by jumping right that day and won't be able to do that here but has every chance of regaining the winning thread if steering a straighter course.
