Verdict

It's impossible to fault the consistency of Blackstone Vegas but Derek Shaw's gelding gets little respite from the handicapper as a result and is 5lb higher than when second at York earlier this month, though does have the beating of Simonside on that run. Accumulate is much better on the all-weather and Perfect Vision has never won on turf, though has shown ability and isn't badly treated here. Tobernea never got going having fluffed the start at Nottingham on his reappearance and is better than that but HALLSTATT was only beaten half-a-length over this trip at that track earlier this month and is possibly the one to beat today.
