Verdict

Only a short-head separated Aquilifer and Hereford Boy when the former scored over C&D in November. However, the latter has since reversed running and it's anybody's guess who'll come out best today. It could pay to look elsewhere in the shape of PERFECT MISSION as he finally got off the mark in a maiden at Wolverhampton last month. He should improve on his earlier efforts in handicaps now he's got his head in front so Andrew Balding's charge gets the nod. None of the remainder make much appeal with Muhandis perhaps the best of those.
