Verdict

Seven of these are rated within 3lb of each other and carry the same weight though Almadaa went up 10lb for scoring here two weeks ago and faces a stiffer task. An Saighdiur's only success came over this C&D but he's proved himself better over further in his most recent starts while the veteran Richelieu has gone up an incredible 13lb for completing a C&D double a fortnight ago. Tsar Paul just failed to catch Farmleigh House last week and looks sure to make a bold bid but Red Army Blues failed to obtain a clear run on that occasion and can take his revenge. Mark Johnston has a fine record here and JOE LE TAXI, who won four times under his care early last year before going to America, will have needed his reappearance at Lingfield last week and gets the vote to add to his trainer's impressive strike-rate.
