In depth

Verdict

Ballinhassig was racing from 14lb out of the handicap when winning at Plumpton in December so can effectively compete off an 8lb lower mark here. He'll obviously be hard to beat if taking that form literally but only two finished that day and Sarah Wall's gelding is hardly a model of consistency. Salut Honore was an early faller here four weeks ago while this may a bit far for Michigan D'Isop and Somerby was well beaten over 2m4f here last month. Miss Fleur should be thereabouts if back to her best but old-timer MASSINI SUNSET kept on well at Chepstow last time having made a lot of the running and may have more luck in this easier-looking test with Gavin Sheehan taking off 5lb.
