Verdict

Juvenal would have an outstanding chance in this on last year's form but has gone backwards this season while the longer trip might be a problem for Southwell and Chepstow winner Mandy The Nag. STAG HILL is no world-beater but is almost guaranteed to run his race and, despite having a bit to find on official figures, might be the one here as Bling King is starting to show signs of temperament. Voice From Above didn't run badly over track and trip two runs ago and is preferred to the returning Thereabouts and one-paced Suspension of the others.
