    Verdict

    None of these inspire confidence with only a speculative vote going the way of TRACTOR FRED. He’s difficult to predict but was only beaten by a nose at Plumpton under Page Fuller on his penultimate start and can race off a similar mark. The latter also partnered Dylanseoghan when he also placed at Plumpton earlier while Virnon found only one too good at Wetherby in January. Uhlan Bute and Eclair De Guye drop down a grade and may post better efforts as a consequence.
