Verdict

TASAABOQ ran well to finish second over 6f here last month and he is the safest pick in a moderate contest to open the card. Breaking Free is not the most reliable of geldings but he did manage to win at Southwell two starts ago, form that gives him a decent shout this afternoon. Others to consider are Frangarry and Suni Dancer.

Verdict

BREAKING FREE, a good winner at Southwell 2 starts ago, wasn't seen to anything like best effect back at that venue 2 weeks ago and he is fancied to bounce back in a moderate contest. Tasaaboq and Oor Jock can provide the lead threats.
