Verdict

True Pleasure steps up in class off a higher mark after a win at Carlisle while Paramour continues to frustrate despite slipping down the weights and returned a losing favourite once again at Thirsk last time. Rawaafed is another hard to predict though he's dropping down a grade for this while Jebel Tara continues to defy the handicapper and was winning for the fifth time this year when successful over track and trip last week. ORIONS HERO posted his best effort of the season so far when runner-up at Beverley last time and won't have to improve much on that to finally register that elusive first win. Richard Fahey's charge get the nod with Chookie Avon struggling at present.
