Verdict

ARCHIE STEVENS drops back to the minimum trip in a bid for his hat-trick. It shouldn't be problem as he usually sits just off the pace and an apprentice's claim negates a big part of a 6lb penalty. Golden Flower couldn't live with the selection at Wolverhampton on her handicap debut and she too is ridden by an apprentice this time around while Modern Lady is weighted to confirm earlier running with Layla's Oasis. Pixilated went close on his reappearance over C&D and should give another good account.
