Verdict

None of these can be described as progressive given the likes of Asatir, George Guru and Silverheels have all been well beaten since scoring earlier in the season. Mabait has gone close over 7f this term and today's drop in class should see him figure again though another chance goes to MAKAFEH. His best effort of the season was a length defeat by Intrigo at Doncaster in June and repeat could well see Luca Cumani's charge gain his first win of the year. Annina was well beaten at Sandown on her return from a lengthy absence, though she's the least exposed of these along with Jeeraan while Party Royal is preferred to recent Kempton winner Uppercut.
