Verdict

A winner at Chester last season, IBSAAR was too free on last month's reappearance at Lingfield and is likely to settle better today. He's just preferred to Dasho, who went close over 7f at Wolverhampton last time and should get the extra furlong here. Joe Le Taxi has won four times over 6f this year but is not certain to stay the extra, while Focail Maith may need another run to put him straight judged on his modest reappearance effort a fortnight ago. The betting may give the best clue to what's expected on their seasonal debuts from Double Dealer and The Shrew, who both won last season and hail from powerful yards.
