      In depth

      Verdict

      Mezeron, Beau Torero and Ethan Snowflake are three against the field in a desperate seller and the vote is given to Mezeron. The selection won well last time out when beating Vocative in a claimer this looks easier and under similar conditions here he will be hard to beat. Beau Torero rates the main danger as he also won last time out when beating Tolouse Express. However he will do well to give weight and a beating to the selection. Ethan Snowflake hails from a yard in top form and has place claims on his best form but his overall profile leaves him with a little to find. Of the others Quest On Air looks handily weighted on his best form but consistency is not his strong point and in a race where stakes should be kept to a minimum for the winner we return to Mezeron.
