Verdict

Good Birthday is just a pound higher than his last winning mark but is a bit of an enigma and he’s never had much luck at HQ. Turntable goes well here, however, and there were excuses for his run at Redcar. Coase tries this trip for the first time on Turf but arrives in form as does Peter The Great, a winner at Chelmsford earlier this month. AEONIAN got going too late over this trip at Lingfield but this more galloping track should play to his strengths and he can make the most of his weight-for-age allowance.
