Verdict

Aloysius Lilius ended a long losing run over 6f at Wolverhampton when making a successful trip over from Ireland. Spirit Power also arrives in good form having landed a double last month and beat TATHMEEN over track and trip for the first of those wins. But the latter re-opposes on better terms today despite a 2lb rise for winning a higher grade sprint over course and distance last week and looks worth sticking with. Mutabaahy scored at Wolverhampton at the end of last year but is 9lb higher today while Big Lachie won this in 2018 but has a bit to find with a couple of these as does Gowanbuster.
