Verdict

SILKEN EXPRESS has been much improved on the Fibresand at Southwell recently. Robert Cowell's charge beat Even Stevens in a higher grade sprint than this over 5f last time and can confirm running with Jiroft if translating that form back to the Polytrack. Swiss Cross is capable at this level but hasn't raced since May and will be sharper for the outing. My Son Max is back on a winning mark but Fat Gary has finished ahead of both the latter and Muhdiq in recent outings over 6f here.
