Verdict

Rime Avec Gentil won at Newton Abbot last month before finding one too good in a couple of subsequent starts at the Devon track. She's 5lb higher now, though still makes more appeal than stable companion Illysantachristina. Am I Blue and Tae Kwon Do could both improve for recent comeback runs while Catch The Fire is usually thereabouts and Tornant was placed in his last three starts in Ireland, though returns from a break for a new yard here. AMERICAN LEGEND should do a lot better now he tackles handicaps and has far more scope than today's rivals. He's taken to open his account with Samtheman possibly best of the rest.
