In depth

Verdict

This looks wide-open as That's The Deal has started to come down the weights again and likes it here while Presented arrives in good form having run well at Musselburgh since scoring at Newcastle. Goring One dead-heated with the useful Jump City in this grade at Wincanton in October and Galway Jack has the ability to figure if in the mood, though that wasn't the case at Newcastle last month. TONY DINOZZO didn't beat much here just over three weeks ago but could be called the winner some way out and has only been raised 5lb. A repeat could be on the cards as he gets 24lb from fellow novice Colebrooke, who has finished tailed off at Lingfield since beating a subsequent winner at Fontwell in November.
