Verdict

That's The Deal did well to master Soudain here last month and the runner-up went on to frank the form at Sedgefield. He's gone up 5lb but has now won twice around here and should go well again. Fabulous Fred hasn't really taken to fences but is well handicapped should the penny drop and likewise Miss Kalifa. Xenophon ran his best race for a while at Market Rasen last time but we like the look of FAREWELLATMIDNIGHT on these terms. He's been waiting for the better ground and Mikey Ennis' claim is a bonus. Winning pointer Callhimwhatyouwant may have a bit of scope and also warrants a second look.
