Verdict

This looks a tough puzzle to solve but supporters should get a run for their money out of SWIFT ALHAARTH. Though 7lb higher than when making all over a slightly shorter trip here last month, he had Time To Work back in third that day and Mark Johnston's gelding is ideally drawn again today for a front-runner. Area Fifty One is interesting as he ran a lot better than the market suggested when second at Kempton last time and could be improving. Rastaban also makes some appeal off a low weight, but the maiden Unex Renoir has looked a little one-paced so far and it looks like the handicapper has finally got to grips with Lexi's Boy. Haylaman was put 7lb after finishing second at Sandown and it's not certain this longer trip will suit on breeding.
