Verdict

It's a long time since He's Got Rhythm showed any form over this trip and he's likely to get swamped from his inside berth. Copper Dock has also been racing over further though he's probably still got the pace for this while That's A Fret has been going well though nine Polytrack starts without a win is a concern. An Saighdiur has never won over the minimum but showed fine speed to score over 6f last week where he had Tsar Paul a head behind. The runner-up was reported to have burst a blood vessel and there should be very little between the pair again. RIGID ROCK had a break after finishing runner-up to Richelieu in November and returned with a good effort behind that winner three weeks ago. Marc Monaghan is good value for his claim and the combination look weighted to take this.
