Verdict

POWERFUL SYMBOL was in fine tune before leaving Jonjo O'Neill, defying an 8lb hike to win over C&D in December. He's up in the ratings again here but looks to be progressing and has cheekpieces added to help him. Given that his new trainer comes here with his previous four runners all having won, he remains of interest. Nightline was just 2L behind him in that race and has run well since, so should be involved in the shake-up. Gibbes Bay was sent off favourite for that same contest but didn't get beyond the second, he is worth noting in the betting with his jumping likely to have been sharpened since. The unexposed Washed Ashore is another potential contender, having perhaps been found wanting by the marathon trip last time out.
