In depth

Verdict

This looks an above-average bumper for the time of year and Snapchat should be winning soon judged on placed efforts at Uttoxeter and Stratford. State Department returned from a lengthy absence to finish third at Newton Abbot and should strip fitter here but Western Way and Multiview appear to have something to find to overturn course and distance running with Anger Management. Like the latter, COLE HARDEN has a penalty to carry but he looked one to follow when making all on heavy ground at Sedgefield in March and can maintain his unbeaten record.
