Verdict

Billyrayvalentine remains very much of interest but his absence is an obvious concern and it's best to see how he moves in the market on this comeback run. Whitecrest is dangerous at best but 4lb higher than her last winning mark which may make life tough whilst Powerful Wind was dispatched to Ireland last time and returned home with third place prize money. He's not the most consistent but should certainly trouble the best of these, which on this occasion may be WASEEM FARIS. The Channon inmate is better than the form figures suggest as he's not been beaten at all far on his last eight starts in decent sprint company and is well worth a shot here off a mark of 76. He also has a course win to his name which can be important at this tricky track.
