Verdict

SAMIZDAT ended a long losing run at Catterick last week. If that signalled a return to form for Dianne Sayer's eight-year-old, a 7lb penalty may not make much difference here as he is still ridiculously well handicapped though Bright Sparky certainly has a chance against the bottom weight on a line through the consistent Knight Valliant. Domino Dancer is only a plater nowadays, while the four-year-old Kayaan failed to build on his Market Rasen second when well beaten at Sandown next time and stablemate Atared was pulled up over C&D last time.
