Verdict

TIRADITO is the call with Licence To Till and Hot Spark worthy of note. Marco Botti's horses have been well punted over the last few weeks and this could be no exception. Placed on the artifical surfaces with regularity over the earlier months in the year, the trainer has held him in some regard for some time. Licence To Till looked useful when landing a maiden at Lingfield; there was clearly something amiss next time around. Hot Spark seemed to appreciate the application of a tongue strap at Doncaster and that remains in place here. Tres Amigos ran too badly to be true on his latest outing while Howard Johnson's team have gone close with their flat runners of late and Paul Hanagan seems a good booking aboard the bottom-weight, Maison Brillet. A tightly framed handicap that can go to Tiradito.
