Verdict

Gregori likes to race up with the pace so looks ideally drawn in stall two. He only weakened close home behind the well-backed Azergam in a better race over 6f here last time so the drop back to 5f should suit and he'll take all the beating. However, we fancy BAPAK BANGSAWAN and Jamie Spencer to pick him off in the closing stages as Kevin Ryan's charge looked a bit unlucky at Kempton last week. He was engaged in the 3.25 at Southwell yesterday so that result should be monitored. Song Of Parkes is another who may be suited by a drop back to the minimum but none of the others arrive in any kind of form, though West Coast Dream continues to tumble down the weights.
