In depth

Verdict

Mick Duggan only won a claimer here in September before being outclassed in a novice event at Salisbury. He faces a stiff task at the weights but Wolverhampton winner Be On The Bell appears to be improving while Gracious George is beginning to knock on the door and is only a pound higher than when runner-up over 6f here last time. EMULATING couldn't justify favouritism over 1m at Lingfield last time but was only beaten a length. A similar effort here may well suffice and Richard Hannon's colt is preferred to the exposed Makinson Lane and the Sakhee's Secret filly Reveille.
