Verdict

SACRE TOI beat the re-opposing Lord Of Dreams and Prince Tam three lengths at Ayr last month. He can effectively race off a lower mark today with conditional Dale Irving's 10lb allowance taken into account and can go in again. Ormus failed to complete on his comeback but has claims on last summer's win at Hexham while a similar comment applies to Well Oiled, who ended 2011 in fine form but was pulled up at Sedgefield on his return. Endeavor showed a bit more last time and is preferred to the out-of-sorts King Brex of the others.
