Verdict

Steal A March made heavy weather of justifying cramped odds at Hereford in December and the form has taken its share of knocks since, the Royal runner has some improving to do on handicap debut. Sandymount Rose and Lunar Baby have both finished second the last twice and command respect while last year's winner Avantgardist offered a reminder of his ability with a better showing at Ludlow recently. Moroder can improve and be involved but THOOR CASTLE was behind two smart sorts here in December and likely wasn't in love with heavy ground at Leicester (second). Emma Lavelle's daughter of Yeats can boost confidence in the yard ahead of a big week.
  1. Thoor Castle
  2. Lunar Baby
