Verdict

Akasaka was making his Polytrack debut when scoring over the C&D three weeks ago and though 8lb higher looks certain to go well. Connections of Joe Eile can't seem to decide his best trip as he stayed on over 7f here last month but failed to last out over 1m3f two weeks ago. He earlier finished around 3l behind tonight's rival If Per Chance over this trip here and that winner should confirm the form on identical terms and also take care of runner-up Tarrsille. Ecossaise got off the mark in a maiden on Fibresand at Southwell and though her form on Polytrack isn't strong she is at the right end of the handicap and must be considered. WHIPLESS has a big weight to carry but he's performed in much better company and Ricky Whelan's claim can help Jim Bolger's charge return to winning ways.
