Verdict

With most of these struggling for form, TRANSFER gets a tentative vote. He hasn't won for some time now, but the handicapper has finally relented and Richard Price's charge went close at Warwick on his latest start. Straversjoy has recorded all five wins over 1m4f at Wolverhampton, but General Tufto has claims if rediscovering his best. Both Highland Love and Pattern Mark won a twice last year but remain out-of-sorts though the lightly-raced Chik's Dream may be capable of better.
