Verdict

Tabarrak, a course and distance winner, is highest rated on official figures but not suited by the structure of race conditions and may be conceding a touch too much weight all round. There was only a neck between Salateen and MARIE'S DIAMOND when the pair came home third and fourth in a Listed contest at Chester on Saturday and the Johnston colt is now 3lb better off which may well give him the edge over the O'Meara inmate, especially after failing to obtain the clearest of runs that day. Hey Jonesy is a talented sprinter and has gone well on all three starts this term but is unproven over the seventh furlong and is therefore reluctantly passed over until doing so.
