At The Races Verdict

Desert Ace showed a bit more when fifth at Thirsk and deserves respect as a past C&D winner, while fellow veteran Robot Boy continues to perform well in defeat and should help to set a solid form outlook. Gleniffer remains capable of better but hasn't been sighted since September, and perhaps GOWANBUSTER can capitalise. Consistent on the all-weather throughout the winter, the five-year-old is rated 4lb lower on turf and has performed well after breaks in the past.

Timeform Verdict

Though THE DEFIANT was behind a couple of these on return at Thirsk, he shaped better than the bare result and, just 1 lb above his last winning mark, he could be the answer. Stablemate Desert Ace was one of those who finished in front of the selection in that Thirsk handicap a fortnight ago and he merits respect. However, a bigger threat may be posed by the lightly-raced Gleniffer.
