In depth

Verdict

Grafite's poor effort in better company at Haydock may have come too soon after his Lingfield victory and he's not easily dismissed back at this level. UBALTIQUE has gone close on his last couple of starts, including when runner-up at Musselburgh last month, and Donald McCain's charge gets the vote to come out best on this occasion ahead of Justazippy, a faller at the last when still in contention at Sandown. Anna's Arch failed to land a hat-trick by only a head at Kelso on his latest outing and is another to consider in an open affair.
