Front-runner who won five times on turf last season (7f/1m); probably needed his return from seven months off at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) 11 days ago, but a concern that he is 1-21 on the AW and has been well held in both starts on Polytrack.

Verdict

Having been in fine form recently, including a last-time out win on heavy ground at Beverley, the front-runner HOW BIZARRE should go well again, particularly if he is able to get over to race against the favoured stands’ rail in the straight. Another confirmed mudlark, Motarajel, looks his biggest threat.[Colin Russell]
