Verdict

Four of these signed off last season on a winning note. Mr Snoozy scored twice over 1m7f at Doncaster in June and Ebony Express won a couple of amateur races at the end of the year. They return to action off 9lb and 11lb higher marks respectively. Esteaming's victory came over 1m4f and King Of Paradise was successful over 1m5f at Hamilton. It was fast ground when Shamaheart scored at Epsom but he's subsequently failed to cope with a harsh-looking 13lb rise, which leaves us with AMAZE. The latter never figured in last week's Spring Mile at Doncaster but has won over 1m2f off today's mark before and gets the nod to come good again.
