Verdict

Ah Yeah gets the vote in this poor seller with South Wind Rising and Percipient rating the main dangers. The selection was a fair second in similar grade behind Shannon Lodge last time out and off the same mark here he looks the one to be on with most of his rivals having shown little of late. South Wind Rising rates the main danger on his latest fourth behind Dead Mans Dante especially if the fitting of first time cheek pieces improve him and he should be watched in the market. Percipient is another that could go well on his best form as he is dropping in grade but his rider is very inexperienced and he looks opposable on that basis. Noble Calling is game and consistent and is sure to run his race but he looks weighted up to his best while Mariday would not want much rain, and with this in mind for the winner we return to Ah Yeah who at least looks sure to run his race.
