Verdict

Al's Memory has been going well on Polytrack, winning five times already this year. Not surprisingly he's shot up the weights and is 20lb higher than when last seen on Turf. Head Space reappeared after a winter break and started favourite at Beverley last week. He wasn't aided by being impeded at the start but ran well enough and must be a threat. SINGEUR has won six times on Turf but is still better handicapped than on the all-weather where he's won just once. He often goes well fresh and is well enough drawn to make a successful reappearance. Haftohaf made a belated debut in the autumn and completed a double at Wolverhampton and he looks ready to score again soon from his lowly mark.
