Verdict

EMIRATESDOTCOM went close when runner-up at Lingfield last month and the winner has since gone in again. Milton Bradley's charge can go one better in this. Powerful Pierre steps up in class off a 6lb higher mark as he bids for a hat-trick of course wins and is closely matched with Trending on his earlier win over track and trip. An outing on the Fibresand last time brought no change of luck for Bassett Road as he finished second once again while Lexi's Hero has yet to show any improvement for his tumble down the weights.
