Verdict

Gentleman Anshan likes sharp tracks but may be a few pounds too high at present, though he finished ahead of both Have You Seen Me and That's The Deal at Southwell last month. Niceonefrankie has proved frustrating to follow this season and likewise See U Bob but MIDNIGHT SAIL won at Kempton on his penultimate start and can be forgiven a subsequent run in a Grade 3 at Newbury where he made mistakes and was pulled up. The top weight must go close if back to his best.
