Verdict

SABLAZO only beat Morestead by half-a-length at Lingfield in November and the latter is 4lb better off now. But Andy Turnell's charge appears to have improved since and can confirm the form on the way to landing this. Red Rock and Benny The Swinger have both won over course and distance this season and should be thereabouts again but Malibu Sun let supporters down at Stratford, though has been dropped 3lb since. Taunton second Wicklewood might be open to a little further improvement but Meirig's Dream doesn't look a natural over the larger obstacles.
