Verdict

APPEASE has the most scope of these. His recent maiden victory over a mile at Kempton was all the more meritorious given it was his first outing of the year and he's a brother to a winning stayer in France. Red Shuttle has every chance on an earlier narrow-margin defeat over today's trip at Salisbury but recent winners Bold Cross and April Ciel have more on their plates racing off higher marks today. Silver Alliance and Jewelled are others in the handicapper's grip but Polytrack winner Excellent Puck can race off a lower mark back on this surface.
