Verdict

PLANETEX has taken a big jump forward with every start and got off the mark in good style at Ripon before completing a double at Newcastle on Friday. He can defy a penalty though last month's Doncaster winner Sleepy Blue Ocean is dropping down a grade and should make a fight of it. Johnny Cavagin couldn't cope with a 10lb rise at Doncaster last time but landed a double before that and is another dropped in class while Cornus could figure on his best form of last year if fully tuned-up for his return to action.
