Verdict

QUALISMART proved far too keen at Haydock in December, but is well worth another chance to get back on track having created an excellent impression when scoring in a good time at Market Rasen on debut. Quinta Do Mar's Market Rasen effort is also backed up by a respectable timefigure, so he's second choice ahead of Dobryn, who shoulders a penalty for his Plumpton success.
