Verdict

MARFORD MISSILE comes out best at the weights. A runner-up on the Polytrack on his last couple of starts, he split higher rated rivals than today's opposition at Wolverhampton last time and gets the vote. A formerly smart handicapper, Rakaan continues on the downgrade and is dropped in class here while Rondeau and Legal legacy are also finding life tough in handicaps off their current marks. Soweto Star has a shout on his close-up fifth over C&D in June and an apprentice's 7lb claim brings Efistorm into the equation.
