Verdict

Tukhoom was placed over 7f at Newcastle last time behind War Department, due to run in the previous race. Decoration Of War won over track and trip before going close again at Kempton while Rockesbury has been raised 10lb after making all at Chester in novice company. Forbidden Planet is preferred to Imminent Approach as the former makes his handicap debut but it could pay to stick with MIRBAT (NAP). The latter made a winning start in handicaps with a victory at Chelmsford and is fancied to show further progress over this extra furlong.
