Verdict

Aint Got A Scooby is the only one of these with a course and distance victory to his credit and has been running well from his new mark without quite getting there. Hipster's last victory was on Polytrack in December but he's been running at a higher level and has won on soft ground here. Nightster beat three rivals to make a winning start at Hamilton but couldn't quite follow-up from this mark back there last week. Mcdelta hadn't shown much in maidens but it was a different matter on his handicap debut at Ffos Las where he gained a surprise victory. He turns out quickly under a penalty and should go well. GONE DUTCH showed a bit of promise in maidens and was well supported when making a winning debut on Polytrack at Kempton. He couldn't quicken off a slow pace there next time but today's long trip and stiffer test will suit and he can gain his first success on Turf.
