In depth

Verdict

Incentivise had River D'Or back in third when scoring at Bangor last month. Both should give another good account while the veteran Mortimers Cross could also be in the mix on his first start since May. Upham Atom should have come on for a recent pipe-opener at Wincanton where he finished a well beaten fifth with Air Force One further back in the field but the vote goes to TEN FIRES. He was headed on the line over today's trip at Stratford earlier this month and looks set to make amends in this. Quentin Collonges is not without a chance on his best form but would prefer faster ground.
