Ran no sort of race despite 5-4 odds (non-black type race) here over 1m6f in April; course specialist who has won four times here and has run his best races on right-handed tracks; if excused most recent runs he would be interesting based on success three runs ago; likely to be in contention

Verdict

This is not an easy race to assess even though we only have a small field. Battleground may have his stamina stretched over this trip while Bournemouth would be a threat if returning to form, but preference is for PAINITE who has been a winner at this track.
