Verdict

The majority of the most relevant form-lines centre around the hat-trick seeking Hepijeu. He is fully respected, and despite a 7lb rise in the weights should come out on top of Mamoo. However, he wouldn't want too much more rain to fall, and is far less certain to confirm the placings with Robin Deuz Pois (from Uttoxeter). Midnight Aurora is on an upward curve for Dan Skelton, and can probably see off old rival Western Storm with that 6yo potentially vulnerable stamina wise late in the race. However, in a tight race, we'll aim a value-based dart at the 12-race maiden MAUNA KEA who shouldn't be hastily dismissed.
  1. Mauna Kea
  2. Midnight Aurora
  3. Hepijeu
