Verdict

Red Primo is proving much better at Southwell than elsewhere and it will be interesting to see how he fares on this new Tapeta surface. But Can't Change It looks a safer proposition raised only 3lb for winning at Chepstow last time. Newbury winner Maraayill can figure back over 7f but Westminster isn't getting any closer, though this looks easier than his recent tasks. MR BOSSY BOOTS won at Lingfield on his debut but failed to cope in Class 3 company at Newmarket last time. This is more his level and he gets the nod.
