Verdict

Android has probably been overrated by the assessor after his Polytrack victory and should do better in this conditions event. Boy In The Bar won a maiden on soft ground here and couldn't handle testing ground on his handicap debut at Ripon. Jaeger Train won a Southwell maiden in March and was having his first start on Turf when a decent third in a Doncaster handicap over 7f so he should go well but the vote goes to NAGGERS. He had little to do to land a Redcar maiden last month but came home virtually alone and doesn't look overrated on a mark of 75. Got To Dance was a disappointing favourite at Bath but still looks best of the remainder.
