Verdict

Fantastic Warrior lowers his sights today and must be respected along with He Has A Touch who caught the eye last time. However, CLEVER RACER makes plenty of appeal on the back of his recent course second and he gets the nod.

Verdict

Late Again has some solid form in the book and must be considered along with the lightly-raced Pull The Trigger and Cajun Bandit. However, ITALIAN CANDY is the clear pick on form and he might well improve now debuting for new connections.
