Verdict

This could be labelled the Tony Carroll show as the Worcestershire handler had five of the eight entries before declaring Mr Lando doubtful. However, having won on Polytrack, Fibresand and Turf, YASIR is very versatile and has won off much higher marks than this in the past so he's given the vote to thwart the Carroll challenge. Since making a successful debut on this track, Gioia Di Vita has never won a race and looks as though he needs to drop a few pounds in the ratings though his rider's claim is a bonus. Graham Lee rode Easydoesit into second spot here on Thursday and, though that was over 2m1f, his mount could prove the best of his stable's quartet.
