In depth

Verdict

MEGLIO ANCORA won here off a higher mark last year and gets the token vote. He finished third at Kempton recently and Josh Baudains' 5lb allowance should give him the edge in this. Katmai River and Appyjack both finished behind the selection last month, but Pendle Lady could figure with a recent comeback run under her belt. Vegas Belle has plummeted down the weights and Tornado Battle ran well here in between a couple of his more usual poor efforts.
