Verdict

This is the time of year when three-year-olds catch up and overtake their elders and MOTIVADO looks one such individual. He seemed to have gone the wrong way until firing right back to form at Haydock when coming home unchallenged. He's been hit hard by the assessor but Sir Mark Prescott is a talented analyst of the handicap merits of his charges. Kazbow has topweight but rates a contender on the level of his last two efforts and arrives here lightly-raced in the current campaign. Expect another good show, whilst Slight Advantage, another progressive three-year-old, scored with authority at Salisbury and looks a potential improver. It's hard to know what to make of Bowdler's Magic at the moment but the remainder all have acceptable chances in a competitive contest.
