Verdict

DISCOVERY BAY is a rare runner here for Charlie Swan and the Dundalk winner is well clear of today's opposition on official ratings. He should take care of Reasons Unknown, who scored at Kempton on Wednesday, on these terms and is hard to oppose. Course winner Electrician has yet to race over this longer trip but it's no problem for Mount Abora, beaten a length in similar company over track and trip in December. Locum has won at Wolverhampton but may need his first start since September.
