Verdict

Khazium has been placed in soft going and has Richard Hughes in the plate but has to give a huge amount of weight to MARINUS on today's terms. The latter comes out best at the weights and may take advantage given his best effort so far came over today's trip. Pius Parker looked to be going the right way with a third at Warwick on his comeback but has disappointed since while Miss Purity Pinker has been placed a couple of times in similar company on the all-weather this year. Recent Newcastle winner Outlaw Torn has a bit to find on these terms.
