Verdict

Hayek scored at Chester last month but will do well to confirm running with third-placed Chosen Character on much worse terms. The latter looks to have a good shout in this but a chance is taken that BUZZ LAW is back to his best. He should have come on for last month's return to action and, with Ryan Tate's claim included, can race off an 8lb lower mark than when runner-up over C&D last August. Cyril The Squirrel is best on the Polytrack nowadays but Rasselas and Jupiter Fidius can be given a chance off their current marks.
