Verdict

CAPTAIN LARS made the most of favourable terms when beating only two rivals in a claimer at Lingfield earlier in the week. He has a similar chance in this and gets the vote ahead of the veteran Silvanus. The latter drops in class but was still well beaten when placed here last time. Monumental Man comes out best of the rest at the weights but was well beaten in a seller here a fortnight ago.
