Verdict

Mister Manannan bounced back to form at Beverley but has it all to do from an outside berth as does Decision By One, who is on the same mark as when just touched off at Lingfield on Friday. GATEPOST looked a fine prospect as a juvenile but didn't do anywhere near as well as expected last year. Not surprisingly he's come down in the weights as a result and can hopefully bounce back and start this campaign with a victory. The very speedy Captain Dunne is another who has dropped in the ratings as a result of a losing spell and he'll love this track and fast ground while Last Sovereign has the inside berth and should make a bold bid to gain his 11th career success. Silvanus has been running well and is another to consider in an open contest.
