STAGS LEAP is thrown in here and really should win on the bridle if taking to his first-time visor; Buona Sarah and newcomer Tweedledrum may provide the stiffest opposition. Richard Hannon's colt takes a big drop in class today which is no real surprise having flopped on his latest two starts this season. On his two-year-old form he would win this at a canter but he doesn't look straightforward and there isn't too much evidence that he has trained on so it would be unwise to get too carried away. Buona Sarah has been in consistent form in some fair handicaps of late but she has plenty to find on official ratings and should only really be winning if the favourite under performs. Sassanian is a regular in this sort of grade but he hasn't been able to take advantage of some easier opportunities and can only be backed if there is sustained market support. Daryainur looks sure to struggle, so the other horse to mention is the filly Tweedledrum who is bred to win races on the all-weather but cannot be ignored here despite starting off at a very modest level. Not a race to dwell on really and the ready vote goes to Stags Leap.
