Verdict

This is a decent contest for the time of year with Theatrelands bidding for a fourth win in five starts, though he hasn't raced since December. Gold Futures has been off the track even longer but his yard is in good form now and he still has plenty of scope. Polstar has already won at Doncaster and Taunton since the turn of the year but it took Focail Maith nine attempts to get off the mark, though he didn't run badly at Kempton last time. A P McCoy was on board TIRADIA when he won by seven lengths at Taunton and the champ keeps the partnership intact here. A follow up may be on the cards despite a huge jump in the weights. The four-year-olds Rockabilly Riot and Mixed Message are lightly raced but may struggle at the weights.
