Verdict

A cracking race for the grade with all bar one of the sextet having won here before with three of them being C&D winners; not easy to rule any of them out. Tor won this last year and he’s always best from the front but he might not be able to dominate here and a bit of cut in the ground would be preferable. DAVY’S DILEMMA will appreciate this 1m5f trip more than the 2m he ran over last time and this slight ease in grade looks a bonus also. Theglasgowwarrior has been in cracking form but this will require a career-best and the three-year-old Vera Drake is preferred with this stamina test looking to suit her as she searches for her initial win.
