Verdict

None of these have been at their best of late but MOVE IN TIME wasn’t beaten far at Newmarket in May and can race off an 8lb lower mark as he drops down a grade. Paul Midgley’s charge may prove good enough in this. Grandfather Tom will appreciate returning to this lower level after struggling at Newmarket and scored off a similar mark at Yarmouth back in April but Sheepscar Lad is best with some cut in the ground nowadays. The remainder are even harder to recommend in their current form.
