Verdict

Lola's Theme was staying on over a slightly shorter trip at Chester on Thursday and is worth a second look if turned out again quickly but POLITICISE (NAP) looks the one to be on. William Haggas’ gelding was slowly away on his reappearance at Musselburgh but stayed on strongly behind a subsequent easy winner with Thursday’s Chester scorer Lincoln Park more than a length away in fourth. Oasis Prince and House Of Kings are both having their first run in a handicap and may improve further and Big Baby Bull has a chance on his defeat of Fox Power at Doncaster last year but may need further this season. Loch Ness Monster ran well at Sandown but there are going concerns here.
