Verdict

The Twelve Steps showed improved form when landing a soft ground handicap at Thirsk earlier this month and Alan Swinbank's colt has to be respected under his penalty, while Irish Pearl ran better at Folkestone last time and is another with strong claims but it is hard to get away from TADALAVIL, who gets the vote. The selection has run to a consistent level of form of late, remains on a fair mark and Mick Channon's gelding will have no problems with the underfoot conditions. Luca Cumani's Credit Swap has yet to prove that he handles ground as soft as this, while Luminous Gold has more to do off an 8lb higher mark than when successful at Folkestone last time. When Michael Bell and Jamie Spencer team up, they always warrant respect and Artsu can be given a chance on the pick of his form, while Mission Impossible is another that handles the ground and has to be considered but he may be a shade high in the weights now. Several have chances in a competitive handicap but it is Tadalavil that gets the vote.
