Verdict

Gatepost is thrown in here on his best form and this is a lot less competitive than races he normally contests. It would be no surprise to see him pop up but he's drawn widest of all and will need luck in-running to score from there. Al Muheer has gone well here in the past and makes a swift reappearance after finishing second in a seller at Redcar on Wednesday while Barkston Ash won at Redcar two runs ago. Gabrial's Gift arrives off the back of recent victories at Brighton and Kempton but needs more in this grade while Cruise Tothelimit has rather lost his way. Like Gatepost, PEA SHOOTER is drawn high but has the pace to grab a decent position and Declan McDonogh is an eye-catching jockey booking - he has decent claims off today's mark.
