Verdict

Megaleka has been in good form so far this year and returned to the Turf with a victory in soft ground at Catterick. But she's been raised a further 6lb and DANCING FREDDY is just preferred. Without a win on the all-weather over the winter, the latter went very close at Pontefract a week ago and can race off the same mark today. Indian Tinker's only win so far came back in 2011 and he's not getting much help from the handicapper while Monsieur Jamie would prefer some cut in the ground.
