7f 3yGood to Firm (Good in back straight)
LASTMANLASTROUND was given a gelding operation before his last run and it seemed to work wonders for the four-year-old, as he did enough to land the spoils at Brighton three weeks ago. He is 2-2 over this 7f distance and a 2lb rise can see him land the spoils once more. Suqoor is a consistent type and he has now slipped to a favourable mark back up in distance, while Bumptious could outrun his odds for Ismail Mohammed.
LASTMANLASTROUND certainly didn't live up to his name when first round at Brighton 3 weeks ago, impressing with the style of his victory, and he could be good for another success here. Song of Shadows remains with potential now going handicapping back from 5 months off, while Realize isn't without a chance first time up for David Simcock.
