Verdict

Tyfos gets the award for consistency however FALASTEEN is dangerously well-handicapped and looks worth chancing. Richard Fahey's gelding is now able to race off 82 and although he has lots to find with Tyfos on their Chester run he rates a lot better than that. Seneschal runs this track well and he is considered despite this new mark of 78, whilst the speedy Billy Red and the well-handicapped The Strig are worthy of respect. A win here before means Universal Circus is not discounted now back on a quicker surface, and along with the in-form Tyfos helps make this a very competitive little sprint.
