Verdict

Elwazeer is very game and consistent but the assessor looks to have him in his grip, though he holds Joe Eile and Toufan Express on their run three weeks ago. BILLYFORD has made a tremendous return after three years' absence through injury and though another 7lb higher after completing a double in January he's still well handicapped and can complete a hat-trick. He comfortably holds Mountain Coral and Mcmonagle on his latest run but He's Got Rhythm may pose a threat as he hasn't finished far behind the selection on both occasions. Vastitas has been very disappointing though she finished a close second on her only start here and is 7lb lower this time.
