    Verdict

    Dazeen ran well over an inadequate trip at Southwell on his reappearance and is entitled to respect here, while Lindoro has enjoyed something of a revival lately. Legal Legacy, Ryedane and So Bazaar should win races this year but may just need this, and Grand Stitch has been found wanting on both previous occasions he's been tried over this trip. Trans Sonic is 9lb higher than when successful over C&D last year and has been racing over further in general on Fibresand lately so the selection is SMALLJOHN. Bryan Smart's five-year-old is only a pound higher than when just failing to hold off Avonrose at Wolverhampton earlier this month and is equally effective on this surface.
