Verdict

Johannes will pop up soon having tumbled down the weights this year and is not easily dismissed. Ashpan Sam is another who should be thereabouts again but Sunraider looks high enough in the handicap at present. Imperial Legend has proved best over 5f so far while George Fenton is upped in class under a penalty after scoring over track and trip last time. Roker Park and Sunrise Dance are others to consider but a punt is taken on PEA SHOOTER, who scored at Haydock last month and may just edge this with a 7lb claimer taking over the reins.
