In Division One of a moderate handicap it might be worth taking a chance on MUTAJAASER, who should be capable of better than he showed last time, and we give the gelding the percentage call with Apotheois and Bestowed also on our radar.After just four starts the selection should have the most scope to improve of these runner's and his last poor effort is ignored as he was short of room for much of the contest. He seems to be shouldering a fair mark on his first start in these ranks and has shaped well in the past. Apotheosis looked in need of his run last time when returning from a break and on the pick of his form from his time with Walter Swinburn is racing off a tasty looking mark.Bestowed looks set for at least another place having won two of his last four starts and running well in defeat at Southwell on his last appearance. His mark remains fair and he is in with chances.Naheell is the last we consider after running well at Lingfield recently but in a race that won't take a great deal of winning we'll give Mutajaasar the chance to improve and score.
