In depth

Verdict

BURIDAN just held on to win over 6f at Windsor on his debut having raced prominently throughout. This shorter trip should suit on that evidence if coping with the softer ground. Johni Boxit posted a better effort when runner-up at Beverley last time but Charnock Richard is preferred if the forecast rain arrives as he was second on soft going at Carlisle last month. Big Time Maybe disappointed in testing ground when favourite at Haydock while Miss Puddles is a likely improver.
