Verdict

CLASSIC PURSUIT is saddled with topweight but performed far better the last twice following a major descent in the handicap and a 2l third to Super Julius at Hamilton last week reads well, prior to which he was a fair fifth of 16 in a competitive Beverly handicap. The Fife inmate was no less than 19lb higher as recently as April so appeals as very well handicapped. Computable is another to find form recently off a significant drop in the weights and a repeat of last week's Catterick third brings him into contention off just 63. Piazon merits respect arriving in good form with Amazing Alba, Boudica Bay and Jeffrey Harris amongst others with claims in a wide-open heat.
