Verdict

NIGHTJAR can land his hat-trick at the principal expense of Southandwest and Willkandoo. Mark Johnston's charge won well at Southwell last time out, confirming the positive impression that he gave when successful here in December. He should be capable of further progression and can oblige here. Southandwest won well at Lingfield on his most recent start. There is an argument to suggest that he is still well handicapped on some of his earlier form. Willkandoo has recently switched to David Simcock's stable and put up a smart effort last time out behind a couple of useful sorts. Ravi River is better than his latest effort suggests but he requires settling early in order to have any chance. Silver Wind is back in a visor after a run in blinkers yielded little fruit. Blue Charm might just be in the grip of the handicapper at present. Nightjar appears to have most positives on this occasion.
