    Verdict

    Mahagoni won nicely at Chepstow but is penalised for this and FLIPPIN’ ECK can take advantage. The latter improved to go close at Thirsk last time and any further progress should see Tim Easterby’s charge off the mark. Benzema steps up in trip after finishing closer at Ripon while Texas Man and Chili Valentino are both full brothers to winners and may prove best of the newcomers.
