A long time since he saw any reward for his efforts; all wins on Turf; not beaten that far (4l, went off 6-1, handicap) 52 days ago here (7f); competes off a lower mark; could go well now down in grade

Verdict

Safe Return is one for the shortlist even if the losing run tempers enthusiasm while Captain Casanova has some good efforts on the ledger. But GIMME'S LADDIE gets the vote. He is chasing a second win over this CD.
