Verdict

Dana's Present was just beaten in a blanket finish over C&D two runs ago, just ahead of Source Of Light, and made amends at Kempton six days ago. He's got a penalty back here but can't be ignored and makes more appeal than Jay Bee Blue, who got off the mark over 7f here last month but may not be as effective over this longer trip. Arabic has been knocking on the door lately and should pick up on of these low-grade handicaps sooner rather than later but Riviera Romance and Auntie Kathryn have had plenty of chances. Roger Varian's record here is second to none and EAMAADD is his only runner at the meeting. He's a half-brother to three winners so should be capable of stepping up on his maiden form now going handicapping and this is a considerable drop in class.
