The Sportsman's Verdict
AZZECCAGARBUGLI was the one to take from the race when second at Chelmsford last time and should appreciate these calmer shores back on Tapeta. He should remain competitive off a mark of 94 and appeals more than Tough Remedy, who is better on this surface than Polytrack but was poor at Lingfield last month, and Ballard Down, who makes his stable debut for David O'Meara and looks best of the North Yorkshire-based handler's two runners on the official ratings.
