Verdict

SWISS GUARD pulled right away from the rest of the field for an easy victory at Lingfield last Monday. He has to lump a big weight around here, but the handicapper will have taken note for the future and Tim Vaughan's charge could be getting off light with only a 7lb penalty. Man Of Leisure has shown improved form of late with a couple of placed efforts here and should figure again, while Form And Beauty also ran well at this track last time and is another to consider. Monsieur has struggled since winning at Bangor in November but has place claims in this grade.
