Verdict

STRATEGIC ACTION had shown virtually nothing before scoring in a first-time tongue-tie at Folkestone where he landed a bit of a touch at big prices. That was a poor race but this isn't much better and as he's only been raised 3lb he has to get the vote. Lady Heartbeat hasn't been seen since January but has shown some promise while a first-time visor may have an effect on Minty Jones, who showed a bit more at Beverley last time. Desert Red is inconsistent but can't go much lower in the weights while the remainder enter the fray in poor shape.
