Verdict

Newton Abbot second Macarthur looks vulnerable again under top weight, though should again beat the disappointing Cut The Cards. No To Trident generally finds a couple too good while Prince Pippin's best form is over further and on a softer surface. Spinning Waters wasn't entirely disgraced at Towcester last month but has run a shocker on the Flat since so we'll take a chance on AJMAN returning to something like his best as he's potentially well treated and Gwili Spar is racing from 4lb out of the handicap.
