Verdict

This is an open-looking affair as any of the nine entries could come out on top if reproducing their best form. Thirsk fourth Secret City is running well but now on a career-high mark while course and distance winner Olney Lass is also possibly a shade high in the weights now. ORBIT THE MOON came right back to his best at Redcar last Saturday as he was only beaten half-a-length in a much stronger heat. A repeat of that effort would suffice, though Comrade Bond is another having his sights lowered and is only a pound higher than when scoring over track and trip last summer. Recent course and distance second First Class may be best of the rest.
