Perfect Pasture continues to improve and landed a Class 2 sprint at Southwell in January with a bit to spare. Just as effective on this surface he should figure, despite a further 5lb rise, but BOOMERANG BOB is just preferred. The latter finished ahead of Trojan Rocket when second in this grade at Wolverhampton three weeks ago and should be sharper for the outing. Mishaal won on his latest visit to the track in November but is 8lb higher for this and Pearl Blue makes more appeal having slipped down the weights since scoring at Newmarket last season when Oh So Sassy was well beaten.
