Verdict

LIEUTENANT CONDE showed the benefit of a three-month holiday when shedding his maiden tag at Wolverhampton in May and with the runner-up emphatically going one better since, a 2lb rise shouldn't inconvenience Hughie Morrison's gelding. El Picador performed only satisfactorily on his handicap bow at Nottingham, but a visor replaces blinkers and he can't be written off. Starczewski has his first taste of handicap action here and does so on the back of a solid Salisbury second.

Verdict

STARCZEWSKI pulled nicely clear of a subsequent winner when second in a 4-runner affair at Salisbury last month and, with the promise of better to come now handicapping off what looks a potentially handy mark, he gets the nod. It's also reasonable to expect improvement from Unplugged and he is feared most ahead of AW winner Lieutenant Conde and Renardeau.
