Verdict

NEZAR has the outside draw to contend with but there will be a maximum of seven runners with Fair Ranger already being declared doubtful and William Haggas' charge looks thrown in on his nursery debut. He was finishing best of all in a valuable sales race over 6f at York last week after missing the break and none of his rivals can match that form. Split Rock continues to run well without winning and looks booked for a place again but Intermath will struggle to give weight to the selection and Party Ruler is easily held on York running. Our Gabrial disappointed over this trip on his second start but has since finished second twice over 5f and may settle better now he has more experience, but Know Your Name and Hulcolt will find easier opportunities before the end of the season.
