Verdict

Reckless Lad won a similar race here in November though was carrying much less weight. The veteran Seanie was conceding a stone and beaten half-a-length that day and along with Yamato, who was beaten just over two lengths and is 18lb better off, should have no problems reversing the form. Six Silver Lane is incredibly consistent at this level and has to be considered again while Specific Gravity will be attempting to win his 10th race though is better over further these days. SPIRAL GALAXY showed some potential in three maidens here last spring, the best of them on his debut here. He has a long absence to overcome but could prove better than this class and gets the nod.
