Verdict

HENRYTHEAEROPLANE is becoming a shade frustrating having found one too good at Ayr last time. But he'd earlier separated a couple of subsequent winners when runner-up over track and trip and gets the vote on that form. Summer Times and Ythan Waters are others with a habit of finding at least one too good and they share the same handicap mark but Cyril and Penelope Pitstop have more scope and both could figure with improvement likely.
