Verdict

Kyle Of Bute was unable to follow-up a C&D win off only a 2lb higher mark last time and hasn't raced since September, but Justcallmehandsome wasn't beaten far off todays' mark on his latest start. He has a bit to find on earlier form with Nina Rose at this track, however, and the latter looks to have strong claims, but the vote goes to MATAAJIR. Derek Shaw's charge registered a hat trick at the turn of the year and can be forgiven his latest below par effort over too long a trip at Kempton. Reason To Believe ended last season with his second win on turf and could figure on his return to action.
