Verdict

Groundbreaking and Velox will likely be winning off their current marks this year but will be better for their first start of the season. Double Discount has more to prove off his current rating and Tigers Tale failed to cope with a 3lb rise last time having won at Kempton earlier. Heavy Metal is upped in class after scoring at Brighton but Gone Dutch went close at Newbury on his return and should make a bold bid. BIG BAZ has been campaigned in better company since winning on the Polytrack in January. This looks more his level and he can return to winning ways with Icebuster looking next best.
