Verdict

Mark Johnston does well here, and his only runner on the card LICENCE TO TILL can sciore here, ahead of Mishrif and Hazard County. Licence To Till's best effort since losing his maiden tag came last time out in a similar race to this, albeit on the Polytrack. He's got ability but doesn't always show it, and like many of the yard's runners, is likely to be at the vanguard from early on. Mishrif finished just ahead of him in that Kempton race, and the weights are adjusted accordingly, but he's only got two wins from 18 runs so isn't exactly Mr Consistent. Hazzard County is drawn on the other side of our selection, so there's little advantage between them in the draw. He's one that collects more place than win money. The yard's in good form though and his mark's come down from 85 in February to 73 now, so the time could be right to take advantage. Preference though is for Licence To Till.
