In depth

Verdict

Drive Home couldn't cope with a rise in the weights last time having won at Catterick before that. But a 3lb rise may not prevent another big run from Elegant Muse who scored over track and trip a fortnight ago. However, FROGNAL can race off a lower marl back on the Polytrack and nearly took advantage when beaten a length over C&D last month. It could be his turn today and he makes more appeal than Piccolo Express and Peak Storm, who were both placed on their latest outings over C&D.
