Verdict

Sun Tzu found Pamak D'Airy too good when sent off favourite at Wetherby last time but should be thereabouts again over this longer trip. Overbranch has shown signs of a return to form with a couple of placed efforts in heavy ground at Carlisle recently and is equally at home on today's faster surface, but so is PERSIAN PRINCE. The latter returned to action with a close-up second behind Tyrone House at Musselburgh in January and can go one better here dropping down a grade. Pacha D'Oudairies has yet to win over fences but has been in better form lately and first-time blinkers may help his cause.
