Verdict

BERRAHRI put in a career best effort when tackling an extended 1m5f for the first time last time out and he is the selection to take this competitive staying handicap upped to this trip for the first time. The selection has to defy a 6lb rise in the weights here but can get the better of Graceland who ran well when beaten a neck in a valuable contest last time out and has won over this C&D already this season. Swashbuckle, third here earlier this year and a winner last time out over 1m6f can claim today.
  1. Berrahri
  2. Graceland
  3. Swashbuckle
