Verdict

Mushaakis has won twice this year but in lower grade handicaps than this and drops back down in distance today. Magistral also returns to a mile having come up short on his handicap debut at Newmarket while Manchestar is facing a much tougher task than when scoring at Musselburgh last time. GABRIAL'S KAKA looks a safer proposition as he went close in similar company at Haydock on his latest outing and, racing off the same mark today, can take care of main danger Bold Prediction.
