Verdict

A decent prize has brought out a strong line-up including Handsome Man, who looked a potentially decent stayer when scoring over 1m6f at York. NOBLE SILK has a fitness advantage having scored twice on Polytrack this year, the last time in what looked a very strong handicap. There's no reason to believe he won't be as good on Turf and he looks the one to beat. Easy Terms is just 4lb higher than when landing a York handicap last May and he'll be better for having the cobwebs blown off at Pontefract while Suegioo could be a blot on this handicap having won his maiden at Lingfield in November by no less than 9l. With Mark Johnston's horses flying, the German import Oriental Fox is one to keep an eye on.
