Verdict

This looks a good opportunity for MAYAN FIGHT to record his first win on Turf. He scored at Kempton in January and a close-up second at Chepstow last time points to a big run here as this looks less competitive. In fact, it's difficult to make a serious case for any of the remainder on recent efforts although Locum wasn't beaten that far in a better race at Doncaster last month and Port Hill is unexposed on this surface despite having a poor strike rate on the all-weather.
