Verdict

Everything Zain has now finished runner-up in his last six starts including on the Flat at Tramore a couple of weeks ago where he threw away a winning opportunity. His ability isn't in question but his attitude is and he doesn't look one to take a short price about. Crouching Harry had Una Veintena 7l behind when a close third to the long odds-on Fisher at Gowran and both can be expected to improve for the experience but this can go to a newcomer and BROG DEAS fits the bill. Pat Flynn's charge completed a hat-trick on the Flat at the beginning of the season and continued to go well in strong company culminating in a rating of 91. Casual Creeper didn't win on the level but had some decent form and he's another newcomer to keep an eye on.
