Verdict

Playhara will be fancied to make it third-time lucky over course and distance after a couple of seconds. But the filly, despite a decent pedigree, clearly isn't one of her stable's brightest prospects. The Milan gelding CON FORZA looks a likely sort and his stable have a good record here in bumpers. He can make a winning start with Dog Or Divorce another newcomer worth a second look and preferred to Worcester sixth Barton Antix and the more experienced Closest Friend.
