Verdict

Tot O'Whiskey is well handicapped if connections can get his career back on track but he's too risky a proposition until showing a little more and ready preference is for ROSENEATH. Alex Hales' charge has to contend with a 13lb rise following his win at Huntingdon but he was impressive and looks capable of coping with the extra weight on his return. That does mean that he has his work cut out to confirm January's form with Thai Vango on these terms but he is progressive. Whaboutya has yet to win since joining this yard from Ireland but can't be ignored whilst Rebel Melody has come a fair down the weights and may benefit from a new combination of aids but they both have plenty to prove.
