Verdict

Lucky Meadows and Lend A Grand have the past form to figure, but Burning Stone has the superior recent form with placed efforts on the Polytrack on his last three starts. Lutine Charlie finished a length behind him at Kempton last time and that pair are closely matched today. Florio Vincitore has been thereabouts in handicaps recently, while Brynfa Boy has been running well in claimers without any joy. In a tight contest, a punt is taken on DONCOSAQUE, who is favoured by the weights on his first start in plating company and has been running better at Kempton than his recent form figures suggest.
