1-8 as a 2yo with his win coming in a Ffos Las nursery (6f, good to soft) in September; looked in need of the run when a well-held fourth of six on his Haydock return (7f, soft) 13 days ago; winner has gone in again since, but this one looks vulnerable to an improver.

Well-beaten 25-1 shot on his Chelmsford debut three weeks ago (7f); should be more streetwise today but others have more obvious claims.

Dam won over 1m6f for the yard and tonight's stiffer test could help now handicapping; easy to pick holes in her Brighton win, when allowed her own way at a steady pace, but it's likely there's more to come.

Verdict

None of the four runners have raced on slower than good to soft and with conditions expected to be extremely demanding (standing water on the track on Saturday), this looks a race to tread carefully with. Volcanology showed a good attitude to win at Brighton 13 days ago and should get the run of things but PICK YOUR BATTLES is improving with experience and has more to come as his stamina is more fully tested.[Paul Smith]
