Verdict

ART DZEKO won twice around this time last year and will have needed his run at Southwell. He has a bit to find but is one of the few here with scope and is handed the vote. Paramour is on a 10lb lower mark than when he started last season and his trainer does so well with his type while Star City is consistent enough and on a fair mark at just 2lb higher than his Wolverhampton success. Pravda Street ran poorly on his reappearance and like Llewellyn is very moderate but the veterans Glenridding and Violent Velocity are the only course and distance winners and shouldn't be discounted.
