Verdict

Guinea Seeker has yet to prove he stays this far while it was a poor seller that Unex Goya won at Yarmouth. Exchange won three claimers before being beaten in a handicap and Dubai Celebration was beaten a long way the only time he encountered ground with some give. Both of Tapis Libre's victories have been over a mile on very fast going though he would be a threat if acting in these softer conditions but this can go to PHILHARMONIC HALL. Richard Fahey's charge had little hope of catching Mont Ras over this trip at Catterick as the winner has gone on to score twice in better company but can run from a 1lb lower mark here and can finally lose his maiden tag. White Fusion looks the biggest threat as he made a promising handicap debut behind Hernando Torres at Thirsk and can improve again.
