Verdict

FAHAMORE started favourite when landing this a year ago and, though lightly raced subsequently and on a 12lb higher mark, he'll have been primed to complete the double and is taken to do so. See Double You has to be a major threat as he has found the minimum trip too short on his two recent starts after completing a hat-trick earlier this year. Raajih has shot up the weights since scoring at Newton Abbot in June and Steele's Rock hasn't run since scoring over fences at Gowran in March but Ciarans Oscar should go well on his handicap debut as he will be reverting to his best trip.
