Verdict

Light From Mars finished a creditable sixth against higher rated opposition in a Listed race at Wolverhampton last time. He has the beating of Atlantis Crossing back in handicap company and should go close. SPIRIT OF SHARJAH has done most of his winning over 7f, including a couple of victories over track and trip, and his defeat of Chapter And Verse here in January gives him the beating of both Roninski and Seek The Fair Land. He get the nod as he's preferred to the returning Galician, but Ortac Rock could prove a threat on his first outing since 2011 as he finished runner-up to recent Lincoln Trial winner Strictly Silver at Doncaster when last seen at the track.
