Verdict

Highway Code returned to the Flat with a victory at Chepstow but has paid for that with a 12lb hike in the weights. Sporting Gold hasn't raced since opening his account in a Polytrack maiden back in January and sports headgear for the first time today. The progressive Artful Prince is upped in class and trip under a penalty after his latest win at Newcastle last week and it could pay to look outside the recent winners. Wolfs Breath and Perfect Summer have scope for improvement but another handicap debutant in OSCILATE WIDLY looks to have superior form in maidens and gets the nod.
