EBRAAM should win comfortably if repeating his run behind Jaconet here last time out; if he is below par then the race may go to Total Impact. The selection drops in trip here today but he is a course and distance winner and is the horse to beat at the weights today. He is a talented individual and granted a true pace should come out on top. Glamorous Spirit is rated 87 and he is an obvious player over this quick five furlongs given his good form at Chester, The Tatling is a consistent old stick but may get run off his feet slightly, whilst Total Impact should be ok with the return to five furlongs and he is an obvious player with Paul Hanagan back on-board. Blinkers may improve Miesko after a three month break however he has an awful lot to do at the weights and so with the others making very little appeal, we will return to Ebraam as the winner.
