Verdict

RUN RUCTIONS RUN found one too good when upped in class on her latest start. But Craig Nichol's allowance means she can effectively race off a lower mark than when scoring in this grade at Wetherby earlier so Tim Easterby's mare gets the nod. Magic Skyline also has claims on the back of an easy win at Catterick and King Zeal scored in soft ground over track and trip in December. Straits Of Messina didn't get very far before falling at Doncaster last time but had Tayarat a long way behind when winning at Fakenham last month.
