    In depth

    Verdict

    None of these inspire confidence but APROVADO has been thereabouts since scoring over 5f here in January and Callum Rodriguez’ 7lb allowance helps his cause today. Burtonwood has failed to figure in a couple of subsequent starts since scoring here last month and Parkour remains 5lb higher than his latest win back in 2015. Money Team has done most of his winning on the Turf but Enjoy Life should be sharper for a recent comeback run over 7f here.
