In depth

Verdict

JOSHUA R (NAP) scored over track and trip last month and a 2lb rise is negated by Joanna Mason’s allowance. He beat Mutabaahy and Blackcurrent on that occasion and the latter pair have both placed subsequently. Swiss Connection ran below par behind the selection last time while Gowanbuster finished runner-up here before beaten in a tough race at Musselburgh. Giant Steps beat Tantastic when scoring at Catterick earlier but has yet to win in 16 starts on the all-weather.
