Verdict

Iusetaluvheronce showed his best for some time when third here under 12-0 on just a second start for Tim Vaughan. If he has been rejuvenated by the Welsh air, he'll be one of the likelier ones in what is not a strong race. He does have to give 13lb to KAHDIAN though and the Rock Of Gibraltar gelding is preferred as a consequence. Both runs since joining Olly Murphy after wind surgery have suggested he's more than capable of landing an ordinary handicap off his current mark. Sir George Somers is a possible improver and maybe it's significant that the normally solid Kilmoganny returns to the fray just five days after a disappointing run at Uttoxeter
