Verdict

VITTACHI scored at Ayr in between a couple of his more usual lacklustre efforts. He gets the token vote despite his unreliability as today's opposition aren't any better. Sinnamara is lightly-raced so there's a possibility she can improve on her nine length defeat at Doncaster while winning hurdler Rhyton was still beaten a dozen lengths when runner-up on the Flat last year. Jan Smuts produced his best effort to date at Carlisle last time and steps up in trip here and Almutaham has been in good form over hurdles of late.
