Verdict

Symbolic Star had been in poor form at Newcastle before creating a shock when scoring there earlier this month. He's only gone up 4lb so would take some beating if in the same mood. Prince of Time was just over two lengths behind and had every chance but MR POTTER is very consistent at this level and over the trip and scored at Chelmsford last month. He made a bold bid to defy a 4lb rise at Newcastle, where he didn't get the best of runs, and this can prove within his capabilities. Dr Red Eye provided a 33/1 shock here in January, the eighth victory of his career, so can never be ruled out while Major Muscari ran well over 6f at Lingfield on Saturday and has no problems with the extra furlong.
