In depth

Verdict

Bay Of Kotor won this last year but is much higher in the weights despite hardly picking his feet up recently. El Mondo arrived from France with a tall reputation but hasn't shown much though he takes a big drop in class. He may just need a confidence booster after falling twice so it's IS HERSELF ABOUT, who hasn't been beaten far in her last two starts and has plenty of scope, who gets the vote under Paul Carberry. Matsukaze has very little to recommend him apart from his connections and though Kilavalley is likely to be fancied he looks vulnerable with his big weight.
