Verdict

Blake Dean is the obvious one in this opener having won easily over course and distance last month before finishing second at Hexham. But he has been raised a further 7lb, which is a worry, and there's a good chance that MIDNIGHT REQUEST will show improvement now tackling low-grade handicaps. He has been taking on decent opposition in his three runs to date. Prince Freddie has finished second twice here recently but has a lot to find to overturn form with Blake Dean while the remainder already look exposed.
