Verdict

Canasta returns from a lay-off 6lb higher than an earlier success over a longer trip at Wolverhampton and Admodum's win came over 1m2f in December. Critical Thinking is best over 7f while Merweb disappointed over the latter trip at Newcastle last time and gets a change of headgear. Fares Poet has failed to build on an earlier second at Kempton but the application of a tongue-tie witnessed RIVER DAWN return to winning ways over course and distance last month and there could be more to come from him in the headgear.
