Verdict

UPTON MEAD stepped up on previous efforts when chasing home Foundation Man at Kempton last week. He races off the same mark here and can make the most of the weights he receives from the returning Plein Pouvoir and O'callaghan Strand, third at Exeter on his reappearance but possibly a couple of pounds too high at present. All of Taffy Thomas' wins have come on ground with some give and he was still beaten 18 lengths when second at Ffos Las last month but Be Definite is back on a winning mark and could figure.
