Verdict

Bartack failed to show much improvement on his latest start and there are more likely winners in this. Hazzaat was a losing favourite at Brighton last time and Raging Bear's fourth at Sandown looks stronger form. He drops back in trip today, however, so SHEBEBI could come out best having finished a decent third at Leicester three weeks ago over today's distance. Mahmood Al Zarooni's poor strike rate here tempers enthusiasm for Ormindo and fellow newcomer Ghost Runner makes more appeal.
