Verdict

This was won by a 66/1 shot last year and not many of these inspire confidence. PENANG PAPARAJA is one of the least exposed and, after a better effort at Lingfield recently, may be good enough for a yard with a good strike rate at the track. Oakley Star and Silver Detail are other lightly-raced types capable of improvement while Idle Talker ran his best race to date when third on the all-weather last time, well ahead of Tommys Geal.
