Verdict

Haftohaf was sent off odds-on at Wolverhampton in February but was headed at the post. He'll be looking to make amends in this higher grade, but Kickingthelilly has the superior form when beating Loyalty at Lingfield last month and she's preferred. MAGIC CITY is proving hard to win with but only had a couple of starts last season in much better company than this. This should prove more his level and Richard Hannon's charge gets another chance on his return. Music In The Rain has slipped down the weights but didn't show any improvement for it at Doncaster a fortnight ago and the remainder are even harder to fancy in their current form.
