Verdict

Bobby Rose is taken to get the losses back, with the likes of George The Second, Titus Lumpus, Make My Dream and Takitwo seen as the main dangers. This is no high-quality handicap, and should be well within the scope of Bobby Rose who has only had nine career starts to date, five of them here, including when sent off as favourite a fortnight ago. That was over six furlongs though, and on today's revised terms, he is confidently expected to turn the tables on George The Second who held on to beat him narrowly last time. The pair look set to dominate the finish again here with the trip and weights favouring the selection. Titus Lumpus is a regular visitor here and made all to win over a mile the time before last. He then faded when trying the same tactics at Kempton and is now dropped back in trip, but will do well to hang on against the principals. Make My Dream kept on well last time and will be suited by the step up in trip, while Takitwo may have suffered the bounce effect at Salisbury and should be noted in the market. For the winner we return to Bobby Rose.
