Verdict

David O'Meara starts off French import Tabaayun at a realistic level and Fallon rides. He should go well but Ian Williams may well hold the key to this claimer as he saddles both MANDY'S BOY and Mandy The Nag, who both run in the colours of Marwen Koukash. Jockey bookings suggest the former is the stable selection and he will probably win this if reproducing the form of his latest second at Thirsk. Calm Attitude is on a hat-trick after wins at Leicester and Ffos Las but his stamina has taken on trust over this extra 2f. Harbinger Lass did win over 1m4f at Thirsk last month but that was only a seller and she was well beaten next time. Bold And Free has plenty to find at the weights while Everleigh has been woefully out of form.
