Verdict

The handicapper has taken no chances with the rapidly improving Short Squeeze. The latter has been raised 12lb for last month's victory at York and MONT RAS is just preferred. David O'Meara's charge also scored at York on his latest start but this looks less competitive and he's already won twice over track and trip this year. Sandagiyr and Navajo Chief have something to find with the selection on York running but Brae Hill is usually thereabouts at this level. Balty Boys is upped in class after going close at Chester and Centurius is also taking on better company today.
