Verdict

MATTAMIA showed plenty of speed to score at Nottingham last month and is fancied to uphold the form with Irrepressible. There may also be more to come from the hat-trick seeking Titus Andronicus, who despite being 8lb higher than he was when winning at Catterick last October, has already shown he retains the ability to be effective at a slightly higher level. This is a stiffer test for him but he is in great heart just now and should make another bold bid for glory. Irrepressible - a half-sister to Reverence - has started to get the hang of things and is at the right end of the weights to still play a strong part. She is an honest type and can again give the selection a run for the money. However, being gelded seems to have been the making of Mattamia as a racehorse and, as this course traditionally favours front runners; the others will need to be at their very peak if he hits the gates in the manner he did at Nottingham when he was last seen out.
