Verdict

The well-bred STRINDBERG makes his handicap debut over what should prove a much more suitable trip. He won't need to step up much on what he's shown to date and looks to have been found a good opportunity. Mister Chiang ended last season with a victory over a mile at Chelmsford but hasn't really shown enough this campaign to warrant the selection. Fayetta is 0-10 and is tried in first-time blinkers but Menin Gate did a bit better at Carlisle and tackles quick ground for the first time. Burnage Boy has shown nothing to date but this looks a moderate handicap so he shouldn't be dismissed.
