Verdict

Powerful Pierre picked up a claiming race here last time and had narrowly beaten Pearl Nation over track and trip before that. The latter is weighted to reverse running and is also preferred to Kyllachy Star, winning for the first time since 2011 when successful at Lingfield last week. Al's Memory won six times last year and had RUWAIYAN in third when recording the latest of those wins over track and trip in November. But he's been out of form since and James Tate's charge can take revenge dropping back down in class after a recent outing in Class 2 company here.
