Verdict

Conditions look ideal for southern raider MYBOYALFIE, who wasn't beaten far off this mark on the Fibresand on his latest start having scored over the trip at Southwell in February. Also successful on soft ground at Chepstow on his final start last year, the five-year-old looks the one to beat today as Nezami, who finished ahead of him last month, is not one to rely on. Talent Scout won twice last year but is likely to need this while Keys Of Cyprus is approaching the veteran stage now. Iceblast was quite highly tried after winning his maiden here a year ago. He could be a danger if Mick Easterby can coax him back to his best and Tamasou is a reliable sort, though probably doesn't win as often as he should.
