Verdict

This looks trappy with all bar two of the field - the consistent Blown It and Argentine - making seasonal reappearances. That pair can be expected to go well here with the Semple charge preferred of the two after a quartet of really good efforts during the winter campaign. His fitness could prove decisive but we'll take a chance with LOST IN PARIS despite the low-key form of his stable. Tim Easterby's team is too good for the drought to continue much longer and his charge is a very decent sprinter at best, having landed the consolation race here last summer for the Scottish Sprint Cup. Hopefully he'll be wound up sufficiently for this reappearance run and can outclass the aforementioned pair despite their advantage of guaranteed fitness.
