Verdict

Lac Sacre was only beaten half-a-length in a seller at Ffos Las last month. But that was over 2m and he'd earlier finished well behind MINISTEROFINTERIOR over this sort of trip at Leicester. Tijori was third in that race but also looks held on today's terms. Barry Leavy also runs Akula, who is eased in grade but looks the stable's second string. Rebecca Curtis doesn't run many at this lowly level so Apache Outlaw is probably worth a second look as he's only run twice under Rules so far.
