Verdict

Matsunosuke won a couple of claimers and a Class 2 handicap here in 2010 but recent efforts suggest he's not the force of old and a couple of these may be too speedy for the 10-year-old nowadays. CRIMEA dropped away tamely at Chester on Saturday but it's significant that Dandy Nicholls is turning him out again quickly here as he went close previously over C&D in this much lower grade. From stall one, he may get first run on Hamilton second Falasteen, who often starts slowly. Loyal Royal and Mother Jones may be best of the rest but shouldn't be good enough at the weights.
