Verdict

Many of these are in good form, including RED ROAR, a good servant to the Alan Berry yard this season. The in-form filly should give punters a run for their money from an inside draw with Julie Burke good value for her 5lb claim. Mayoman was well on top by the end of proceedings at Haydock a week ago and is expected to go well again off a 3lb higher mark. Flash City hasn't been seen since the early days of the season but has some interesting form in the book and is entitled to respect if ready to roll. Cruise Tothelimit, Hotham and Bravo King haven't been done any favours by the draw but retain claims nevertheless.
