In depth

Verdict

Dungannon had the worst of the draw at Doncaster last month and has been showing signs of a revival lately. Haamaat won a competitive handicap over 7f here last time and is another for the short-list but Swiss Cross has been over further lately and Noverre To Go has a lot more to do than when landing a claimer at Wolverhampton. It looks like Docofthebay is on a downward curve but stablemate THUNDERBALL is in good heart and could bounce back to winning ways here. He finished ahead of another Scott Dixon runner, Even Stevens, and York Glory in a Doncaster Listed race on the final day of the Turf season and did win on the Polytrack here a couple of years ago. Sugar Beet may be best of the rest.
