Verdict

Mut'Ab races off the same mark as when a length second to veteran Spider Boy at Folkestone but it's not hard to imagine that he'll find at least one too good again here. MONSIEUR has been in decent form this season and can return to winning ways with Nathan Sweeney's 7lb claim in his favour. He only went down by a neck at Warwick on his latest start. E Street Boy is best watched now after folding tamely over a longer trip here nine days ago, while Sparkling Brook returns from a lay-off and Storm Command hasn't shown a lot so far. Sunset Boulevard has been in fair form on the all-weather but his form over hurdles has left much to be desired in the past.
