Verdict

TAROOQ is clear on official ratings and beat subsequent winner Light From Mars at Wolverhampton last time by a cosy two lengths. The latter proved too good for today's rival Majuro at the same track so Stuart Williams' charge looks the one to beat in this. There's not between Majuro and Irish Heartbeat on earlier running though the latter re-opposes on better terms while the remainder have it all to do at the weights with Imprimis Tagula the best of them.
