Verdict

Most of these have won around here but Free To Roam, though very consistent, has never won over the minimum and was scoring for only the third time in 30 starts when successful over 6f last month. DANZ GIFT was conceding 5lb to Flawlessly when beaten just over two lengths last week. He didn't get the best of runs and the assessor has dropped him to a mark he is well capable of winning off so can regain the winning thread. Sheila Lavery has booked a 10lb claimer for the winner, who has to be considered for a follow-up, and though Jenniechild ran poorly here last time that isn't her form and she can do much better. My Good Brother, the mount of champion jockey Colin Keane, has won 10 times, the latest over the track and trip in September, and he's now 3lb lower. Bluesbreaker, beaten a head over track and trip by Chicago School last month, found a mile much too far last week when starting favourite but the winner should have his measure again.
