Verdict

A late starter this season, IDLER has made up for lost time by winning four of his eight starts. Last week's four-length victory at Newmarket was his best effort yet and given today's drop in class, Mark Johnston's charge can defy a penalty and go in again. Dream Tune also posted an improved effort at Chester last time on the back of a win at Salisbury and we may not have seen the best of Oblitereight yet as he went close in better company last month. Whimsical, Rio Grande and Muarrab are upped in class while Goldream is upped in trip and 3lb higher than for his latest second at Doncaster. Genius Step looks sure to improve with his seasonal debut out of the way though has some catching to do if he's to match the principal contenders.
