In depth

Verdict

Richard Fahey is mob handed with seven runners and Paul Hanagan rides the penalised Valery Borzov despite Prime Exhibit looking to have a better chance. Nasri is saddled with top weight and Adrian Nicholls prefers the higher drawn Tax Free here, while David Barron has a strong hand with Bertiewhittle beating stablemate Elusive Prince at Newmarket before the latter won at Ripon recently. Parisian Pyramid had Fathsta a couple of lengths behind when runner-up at York last time and Mirza has claims on his latest second at Ffos Las. Marvellous Value carries a penalty for a recent cosy win at Haydock but had finished well behind GRISSOM at Pontefract before that. Tim Easterby's charge has since won again at Doncaster, will a handle any cut in the ground and looks set to run a big race.
