Verdict

MARODIMA can be hard to peg back if allowed to poach a lead and won by 40 lengths over course and distance the last time he raced in a claimer. He should still have the ability to show these a clean pair of heels. Teshali reverts to hurdles after a couple of runs over fences and is an infrequent winner while King Fingal's victory in a Catterick seller was his first for more than two years and he's hardly reliable. Right Stuff seems to reserve his best for the Polytrack nowadays and none of the others have much chance at the weights.
