In depth

Verdict

Ryan Tate's allowance negates a 5lb rise in the weights for Hassle after the latter scored over track and trip on his latest start. At the other end of the handicap, Lineman could also figure again on the back of a close-up third in the second division of Hassle's race. But BURNHAM may prove too good for both as he went very close on his previous attempt at today's distance and ran well for second at Windsor on his reappearance. Both Zipp and Brigadoon can also be given a chance though the latter is preferred if the rain stays away.
