In depth

Verdict

Royal Challis appeared not to stay the 7f at Newbury last time and should be thereabouts back over today's distance. The Dark Wizard also has strong claims on his latest third at Nottingham with William Buick's booking taking the eye. SIXTY MINUTES is another leading contender as he ran well when placed at Yarmouth on his recent debut and David Brown's colt gets the nod with improvement expected. Rock Up is more exposed as he drops back into maiden company and the remainder are harder to fancy unless the newcomer Xanders Secret comes in for any strong support.
