In depth

Verdict

This looks wide-open and a market check is advised. King Massini just failed to score off his new mark at Ludlow nine days ago while Ballymoat is improving and unexposed. At the other end of the handicap, Doncaster third Marley Roca has claims while Richmond was only beaten a length at Wincanton after winning at Lingfield. Gordon Elliott's Hit The Headlines and Al Alfa are others to note but Atlanta Falcon needs some help from the handicapper. FRIENDLY SOCIETY was a fair third at Plumpton on his first start for Noel Williams. He could be well treated in this on his form in Ireland and Thomas Garner is a good jockey booking. The eight-year-old gets a tentative vote as the normally consistent Have You Seen Me ran a shocker here last month.
