In depth

Verdict

It's hard to make a strong case for any of this bunch. VENTURA SANDS gets the speculative vote as he clearly didn't act on the Fibresand last time but had finished a close-up fifth on the Polytrack at Wolverhampton before that. Kingswinford has claims on his best form but will need luck in-running from a high draw while Fonterutoli was still beaten three lengths when runner-up in a lower grade race here last month. Storm Runner is also upped in class, having won over C&D recently, and the remainder are even harder to fancy.
