Verdict

Medici Time bounced right back to form at Newmarket and generally stays in good heart for a few weeks so he should be in the mix despite going up 6lb. Clear Praise gained his first success on Turf at Folkestone and a 5lb rise won't help while a high draw may scupper the chances of Ryan Style, who would otherwise look to have a fine chance from what looks a lenient mark. Orders From Rome came with a strong late run to land a similar handicap over the C&D but couldn't handle the step-up in class at Newmarket. He's on the upgrade and can give a good account but SIGNOR SASSI will take some beating. He was always travelling well when landing a Doncaster maiden earlier this month and with progress virtually guaranteed and a very lenient looking mark he can complete a quick double before going on to better things.
