Verdict

Anatar gets the confident vote to win this seller with Smilingvalentine and Windy Spirit rating the main dangers. The selection was a fair second behind Northaw Lad last time out. That form looks rock solid in the context of this race and under similar conditions here he need only run up to that mark to score. Smilingvalentine rates the main danger on his latest staying on third behind Brochrua especially as this longer trip should suit and he should be noted in the market. Windy Spirit is another worthy of respect on his latest second behind Mizinzky but he is hard to win with,. Of the remainder Urban Dream could improve for the fitting of first time cheek pieces and could go well at a price but for the winner we return to Anatar who sets a fair standard and will be hard to beat.
