Verdict

A dual winner in his native France, MORAR got off the mark in this country when winning in fine style over C&D last month. He's been raised 8lb but such was the manner of his victory, he is worth sticking with here. Satwa Gold finished five lengths behind him but is weighted to reverse the form and is back on a winning mark, but Chookie Hamilton looks too high in handicap now and it's been some time since Spring Jim last won on the Flat. Sinbad The Sailor is fresh from a spin over hurdles and looks a bigger threat.
