Verdict

Quite a few arrive in decent form from the pointing arena, including Current Exchange, who also rallied well to land a hunter chase at Leicester on his last start under Rules last month. A strong performance is anticipated but narrow preference is for course and distance winner, SPECIAL PORTRAIT. The likable grey put a disappointing Kelso effort behind him when a battling second to Sacred Mountain at Sedgefield latest and a repeat of that run puts him bang in the picture here. Course and distance winner Ocarina looks best of the Alexander pair but has something to find with the aforementioned duo, whilst Page One Two Nine, winner of two of the last four points, also warrants respect.
