Decent effort when 40-1 runner-up over C&D (handicap) last week; just a sole success to his name; this represents a step up in class but on the shortlist

Has won over course and distance but failed to make much of an impact in handicaps recently; finished last dropped to this distance in a handicap in November when first-time blinkers didn't help; handicapper has eased the burden; hard to see him taking this despite this looking a little easier than last time

Verdict

BLACKWHITEDYNAMITE gets a firm vote. He can improve on an excellent course record. This trip could be a bit far for Preemptive Strike while Son Of Silk has seen his limitations exposed, and Roy's July Magic has to overcome a hike in the handicap.
