Verdict

More luck than judgement needed here. Nezami posted another decent effort last time on the back of a victory at Chepstow in August but Moheebb was favourably treated when winning a claimer over C&D and was well beaten on his latest start in a handicap. Eastward Ho has lost his form of late but Burns Night has slipped down the weights and may bounce back. Dandarrell looks a bigger threat on his recent defeat of Wiseman's Diamond over C&D but the token vote goes to the lightly-raced KEEP IT DARK, a close-up second at Thirsk last time with plenty of scope on his handicap bow.
