Verdict

Docofthebay has failed to show any improvement for his tumble down the weights and the veteran doesn't look the force of old nowadays but better is expected from C&D winner Delft this year and she has decent claims. Al's Memory bids for hat-trick of C&D victories but was all out to win a lower grade contest last time while Al Khan is another struggling for his best despite plummeting down the handicap. PRINCE OF BURMA recorded a double at this time last year including a victory over track and trip and back on a lower mark today he could well make Hayley Turner's only ride of the meeting a winning one.
