Verdict

Even Stevens beat a handful of today's opposition when scoring over track and trip on New Year's Day. He's been upped 8lb for that success but Silken Express and Jiroft were a long way behind despite filling the places and Scott Dixon's charge has leading claims once again. Bedloe's Island just got the better of Equitania here last month and Woolfall Sovereign won the 2012 renewal of this off a 13lb lower mark. Whaileyy is a useful sprinter on his day but remains out of sorts, so a chance is taken on ALBEN STAR, beaten a length in this grade on the Polytrack last month and back on a winning mark if taking to the Fibresand.
