Formscan - Given that Turbo Command is arguably better on the all-weather and Laertes didn't seem to be exactly crying out for a step up in trip when he was brushed aside by a runaway winner over 6f at Chelmsford nine days ago, this might be best left to MERRICOURT, who has dropped to a mark 4lb lower than his last win. He has gone well over C&D before and could be hard to peg back if set alight by the first-time blinkers. Monaadhil rates as the chief threat.
