Axe Axelrod has clearly shown plenty at home to be sent off odds-on in his two starts to date, where he was beaten on both occasions at Hamilton and Ayr. A switch to the all-weather could prove the answer for Richard Fahey's colt but he needs to prove himself. BELEAGUERMENT disappointed at Salisbury when unplaced but a return to Wolverhampton, where he was second beaten a neck, can see him get his head in front. Suppressor is open to improvement from his Chelmsford debut when third to Moyassar.
Having shaped with encouragement on debut at Chelmsford, SUPPRESSOR could be the way to go. The Holy Roman Emperor colt will be more street-wise now and may find the necessary improvement to see off Axe Axelrod and Beleaguerment, both of whom were disappointing favourites last time out. Zmhar is best of the rest.
