Verdict

Picanight and Zafraaj are hard to fancy on these terms but there's little between the remaining trio on official ratings. However, Bonjour Steve is without a win in 13 starts and his best efforts to date have been over further while Yankee Red was still beaten seven lengths when runner-up at Yarmouth last time. COMMANCHERO has not looked like winning so far but finished a lot closer at Kempton on his latest start and his stable continues to rattle up the winners. Andrew Balding's colt may be up to landing this on his return to action.
