Verdict

Zaraee failed to improve for the step up to 7f last time and Lincoln makes more appeal. The latter is usually thereabouts without being quite good enough but Jaeger Train's recent placed effort is misleading given he was beaten a long way at Pontefract. HIGHLAND ACCLAIM won at York last month and ran well again off a higher mark subsequently when third at Ascot. This looks less competitive and David O'Meara's charge gets the vote.
