Verdict

Arizona John has been threatening to get his head in front of late and Carragold actually did so over a shorter trip at Newcastle last time. The latter had earlier found Gold Show too good at Pontefract while Titus Bolt also scored over 1m2f at Newcastle on his latest start when beating Mr Snoozy a couple of lengths. NASHVILLE has joined Richard Fahey having won over 2m at Lingfield in December. Today's drop back in distance shouldn't be a problem and he still has plenty of scope for further improvement. The returning Dark Dune and Villa Royale are others with a shout.
