In depth

Verdict

Lunar Crystal had to work hard to win a seller at Newton Abbot on Monday and may struggle to follow up in better company here with preference for Hawadeth, who is preferred to Pro Dancer in a moderate contest. The selection has the beating of Lunar Crystal on their running here earlier this month, should not be inconvenienced by the drop back in distance and he makes most appeal in an uninspiring contest. Speed Winner has claims on the pick of his form but may struggle to give weight away all round, while Atlantic Rhapsody has given little sign for encouragement of late. Outside Investor has disappointed of late and of more interest may be Pro Dancer, who has struggled against the handicapper of late and may appreciate the drop in class. Hawadeth is not as good as he once was but should be more than capable of beating these.
