Verdict

Henry The Aviator not only has to defy topweight but has beaten just one of 37 rivals in his last three starts and Circumvent is more reliable but looks in the grip of the handicapper. Anderiego has been in search of his best form for over a year now and the three-year-olds make greater appeal. My Target and Ocean Storm both progressed well in their respective juvenile campaigns and are well respected but are faced with lengthy absences to overcome and METEOROID rates a better option. He remains a potential improver, should be well suited by the return to a mile, prefers the forecast quicker ground, receives weight all round and sports first-time blinkers to aid his concentration.
