Verdict

This looks tricky but last year's winner All The Winds might struggle to overturn recent course and distance running with the progressive Lineman, despite more favourable terms. Royal Alcor beat Mica Mika over a longer trip here last time but there shouldn't be much to choose between the pair today. But THE LOCK MASTER, who has won a couple of times on the Polytrack, should take all the beating if reproducing his run on the Fibresand last month. That was a much hotter contest and he's only been raised 3lb.
