Verdict

BIOTIC is still improving judged on his most recent win at Kempton when scoring by four lengths. A further rise in the weights may not be beyond him and he is preferred to last week's winner Moccasin. The latter is penalised for that Redcar success but was well ahead of Save The Bees while Brutus is getting closer in handicaps and can race off the same mark as when runner-up at Sandown when three lengths ahead of Zamperini. Rock Lobster and Quest Of Colour are upped in class and Lord Franklin looks high enough in the weights now.
