Hats Off To Larry (11/4), Brancaster (4/1), Clemento (4/1), Never Surrender (15/2), Against The Odds (8/1), Amanto (10/1), Becca Campbell (16/1), Berrahri (16/1), Rydan (16/1), Bamako Du Chatelet (25/1)

Verdict

CLEMENTO may be a maiden on the level, but he proved he could win over hurdles in May, and went very close at Ayr last time. With a top apprentice booked, he makes plenty of appeal. Amanto won cosily over C&D last time, and should go well again despite a 5lb rise, and the well-handicapped Against The Odds is another to consider, assuming blinkers continue to have a positive effect.
