Verdict

Desert Philosopher ran twice on Polytrack for Kevin Ryan and won both times. He looks just the type for these races and should go well on his debut. Forevertheoptimist won a Listed race at Sandown for Linda Stubbs, though he hasn't been seen for over a year. He'll be better for the run and is one to note for the future as is Take Ten, a dual Polytrack winner for Mark Johnston though that was two years ago. Sand Stamp won a moderate maiden over the C&D in January but was outclassed in his two subsequent starts the following month so with fitness guaranteed this can go to GANAS, who made all in a minor handicap here a fortnight ago and with just 3lb extra can follow up, though Musaalem should finish closer as he was having his first start since February. Innocuous is better over further as he showed when runner-up over a mile here last time.
