Verdict

All are in good form with the exception of Suits Me in what looks a tricky riddle to solve with the top five separated by just 3lb on official ratings, although Eeny Mac is not ruled out in receipt of weight all round after a comfortable Beverley success last time. Bold Prediction has gone well here on his last two starts and ties in closely with Hit The Jackpot on recent running. The latter, one of two O'Meara contenders, looks to have strong claims of revering placings on these revised terms, whilst stable companion, Bartack, an ex-Cumani inmate, has improved in each of three runs for his new yard and can be expected to continue that progression. BUSATTO ran a cracking race at York on Saturday in a highly competitive affair and has outstanding claims on that evidence. However, like so many in his yard, he seems to have two ways of running and therefore cannot rate a confident recommendation.
