Verdict

Colebrooke came back to form when second at Lingfield while Phare Isle was third over 3m here last time and Killian Moore takes off a handy 7lb. Dawn Twister has to be of interest now running in a handicap and Invicta Lake certainly wasn't winning out of turn at Fontwell, though is 8lb higher now. Likearollingstone is another who looks high enough in the weights while Crafty Roberto hasn't shown much this season but we expect a big run from MAJORICA KING. Though still a maiden, he ran several excellent races last season and may have been let in lightly on his handicap debut. McCoy takes over in the saddle from a conditional after a pipe-opener at Worcester.
