Verdict

GIANTSTEPSAHEAD sports joint topweight but rates an improving sort this term, landing a convincing success here on his penultimate start before only succumbing narrowly at Nottingham on the forecast ground. He comfortably accounted for Hamble here two starts ago and is expected to confirm the form on slightly disadvantageous terms. The lightly-raced pair, Samaral and Censorius, should both improve on recent latest runs although it must be noted that both appeared to display a degree of temperament on those occasions. Corn Maiden likes it here but Magnolia Ridge, solid and consistent, appeals as a more reliable threat to the selection.
