Verdict

LEVIATHAN ran a very promising race at Uttoxeter 11 days ago, only weakening at the last having travelled well throughout. The handicapper has rather harshly raised him a pound for that but Venetia Williams' charge looks to be approaching peak fitness and loves soft ground. He's preferred to the hat-trick-seeking Zaplamation and Smadynium, who only won by a neck at Catterick and is 7lb higher now. Bob's World showed a bit more here last time but Trucking Along and Radmores Revenge are high enough in the weights now. Tara Muck may need more time.
