Verdict

BUSATTO is one of only two Mark Johnston runners at the meeting and the impressive Beverley scorer can defy a penalty in a race in which there are question marks surrounding most of his rivals. Bold Duke and Shouranour both have an absence to overcome while Haydock fourth Arlecchino has a very poor strike rate, though has been dropped a further 2lb. Perfect Cracker was only beaten a nose on the Polytrack last time but has gone up 3lb for his troubles and Adam Kirby gets off him to ride stablemate Greylami.
