Verdict

We see this competitive handicap being played out between course specialists Swiss Art and MOZAYADA and with the latter now back to his last winning mark we side with Mel Bittain's runner while in-form Allformary remains of interest. Having scored four times from eight starts over course and distance the pick has also displayed an aptitude for soft ground on the turf with victory over an in-form rival at Thirsk three starts ago. He returns to his favourite course off a mark of 77 which is the last rating he carried to victory on the Fibresand. Swiss Art has scored on all four of his starts over course and distance with all five of his career wins coming here also. He obviously has decent claims on this race but most of those victories came in plating class and he remains three pounds above his last winning mark. Allformary is certainly on form but has a result to overturn on Swiss Art and Ours is also running well but hasn't so far been effective on this surface.
