Verdict

Romeo Americo was narrowly beaten over C&D last month before finishing second again behind Barton Stacey over a longer trip at Towcester. He has to be in the firing-line again but HELIOPSIS was still in touch and travelling within himself when brought down in what may prove a decent contest at Bangor last month and can get off the mark here. Hightown has ability but may need this while bumper winner Comedy House looked a little one-paced when third at Towcester but will know more today.
