Verdict

It's difficult to get away from the chances of the six-year-old MUCKAMORE for the trainer/jockey combination of Nigel Twiston-Davies and son Sam. The Olly Murphy-trained Vinnie's Getaway can emerge as the biggest danger following a string of promising efforts last summer. The Jeremy Scott-trained Tuscan Pearl made a pleasing return at Huntingdon earlier this month while Kingsmill Gin could go well at a price.
