    Verdict

    TARBOOSH (NAP) looks to have plenty in his favour. Representing last year’s winning yard, he finished ahead of Copper Knight when beaten only a nose at Leicester last week and had Kyllang Rock back in third when landing a conditions race in soft ground at Beverley before that. Paul Midgley’s sprinter looks the one to beat given he has a bit to spare with Merhoob on today’s terms and Broken Spear has little chance at the weights.
