Verdict

Mudita Moment's winning streak came to end at Bangor. He went close again but has been raised a further 5lb for his trouble. Mr Utah failed to cope with a 9lb rise at Doncaster having landed a double before that but the veteran Granaruid went in again on his latest start at this track and has claims. Vinny Gambini is another course winner and ran well at Ayr last month though it could pay to stick with ISLAND HEIGHTS. The latter made a winning handicap debut at Ayr last week and will need to improve on that, but has plenty of scope to do so and gets the vote.
