Verdict

There's every chance that Red Roar is well treated on his handicap bow after a runaway win in a Beverley maiden but that's not guaranteed so preference falls on OONDIRI. A winner over course and distance on his first go three starts back Tim Easterby's runner then basnished a below par effort with a cosy enough success last time out. He got the better of the re-opposing Duke Of Rainford on that run and the subsequent weight swing shouldn't be enough for a reversal of the form. Philosophers Stone might be one to keep an eye on now at a light looking weight following a poor run.
