Verdict

Ehtedaam scored on Polytrack in October and reappeared to complete a double at Newmarket but didn't improve on that run on a return visit last month. He'll need to do better as Cruiser arrives in cracking form and the assessor has seen fit to raise him just 1lb for his recent victory at Ffos Las. JUVENAL had a very good second season winning twice and finishing runner-up three times from six starts. He ended the season with a victory here and can maintain his progress this campaign starting here. His stablemate, the three-year-old Beedee, made a winning debut last May so might not need the run despite an absence since October.
