Verdict

Stonecrabstomorrow won a couple of minor events over the minimum trip at Brighton and was staying on stoutly there in a better race there next time. He should have a say in this as should Ray Of Joy, who has generally competed at a slightly higher level since scoring at Kempton in May. SEEK THE FAIR LAND hasn't won since February of last year but has run well enough on several occasions and his second to Ivory Silk at Newmarket last month sets the standard here. Aye Aye Digby gained his first success for two years in a Folkestone claimer and though this is tougher he looks to be back to the kind of form that would give him a chance.
