In depth

Verdict

It could pay to stick with MURCAR in this. He beat a subsequent winner four lengths over course and distance earlier this month and can effectively race off a lower mark today with an apprentice's allowance taken into account. Somemothersdohavem could also figure as he ran well off today's mark at Kempton last time and Wild Desert is another who should benefit from his rider's 7lb claim. Bradbury, Sohcahtoa and Odin are not without a shout though the latter is unproven over the distance.
