Verdict

In a really decent handicap it might be worth siding with Mark Johnston's PERPETUALLY, who's open to plenty of improvement, ahead of the on form December Draw and consistent Thunderstruck. After making an encouraging handicap and polytrack debut when retuning from an absence last time the pick should come on for that run leaps and bounds. This will be the first time that he's been able to turnout again quickly and we fully expect that to be of benefit as well. December Draw has been on top form since the turn of the year winning over a furlong less at Lingfield two starts back. Flanking that run is a couple of near misses the latest over course and distance but he's up again in the weights despite not winning, which is just enough to put us off. Thunderstruck was only beaten a head off this mark last time so has to rate as a live contender while Officer In Command has a chance after a couple of great runs. Drogba hasn't had much racing recently but has a chance at building on his last effort however Perpetually is open to all kinds of progress and gets the nod.
