Verdict

Double Chocolate probably needs further than this but a visor may sharpen him up a little and the top weight is by no means harshly treated in what looks a weak race. Zhukov has also won off higher marks in the past and handles heavy ground but Tinelyra has become expensive to follow, as has FITANDPROPERJOB. However, Charlie Deutsch's mount has been taken on better opposition and could be the one in this with Thorncliffer unseating his rider at the first here last time in a race in which old stager Thedreamstillalive finished second to easy winner Carli King.
