Verdict

NUBAR BOY forced the much higher-rated Justonefortheroad to pull out all the stops in a seller at Beverley last time. Eight lengths clear of the remainder, Ian Williams' charge looks sure to run his race which is more than can be said for most of these. Cravat scored at Lingfield in between distinctly modest efforts while Colour My World has been placed in a couple of lowly handicaps at Wolverhampton of late. Ewell Place has slipped down the weights and Ryan Moore's presence suggests a return to form is expected while Bapak Muda scored off a higher mark here last season, though both wins to date have been over 6f.
