Verdict

The unbeaten Polar Chief won twice in testing ground last season and is only 3lb higher on his return to action. MUMEYEZ beat little to land his maiden at Wolverhampton in February but couldn't have done it any easier and he gets the vote with further progress expected on his handicap bow. Mandy's Boy ended last term with a victory over track and trip and that looks stronger form than Strong Conviction's success over 7f here. Santo Prince and Minimee are other winners who will find life tougher in this company but Little Dolly should finish closer after failing to act on the Fibresand at Southwell last time.
