Verdict

Both Shanksforamillion and PLANTAGENET have been much improved performers for their respective new connections. The former arrives seeking a four timer, but races away from his beloved Worcester, and whilst his form is relatively solid, this track provides a much different test. Therefore, strong preference is for the Mullins trained runner. Plantagenet isn't lacking for stamina, and this drop in trip is obviously a slight concern, but with ground conditions ideal and a 5lb rise for his latest Worcester success looking incredibly fair, this stiff track should hopefully help to counterbalance the drop in trip.
  1. Plantagenet
  2. Charlie Papa Lima
  3. Shanksforamillion
