Verdict

Blazeofenchantment didn't help his cause by hanging right in the closing stages here in March and VICTORIAN NUMBER is preferred. The latter made the frame here on a couple of occasions in January and should be sharper for a recent comeback at Kempton. He gets the vote given prolific Polytrack winner Officer In Command makes his debut on this surface, as does three-time Kempton winner Foie Gras. Putin has won here before and pops up when in the mood as he clearly was when scoring over 6f at Lingfield last time.
