          Verdict

          Weloof won a lower grade contest over track and trip back in January and has switched yards subsequently. He’d earlier finished behind runner-up Dark Alliance here and the latter can figure with Jim Crowley on board today but ARCTIC SEA is preferred given he’s placed in this grade the last twice and scored off a similar mark over course and distance last term. The Warrior is back on a winning mark and wasn’t beaten far at Windsor recently while Nawar remains unexposed with a tongue-tie added for the first time having undergone wind surgery since last in action.
