Verdict

FULGORA is the only one of these with winning form on soft ground. Brendan Powell's filly was successful on her chasing bow at Warwick and, though she has more on her plate in this handicap, has plenty of scope and should complete a quick double as Special Robon was well beaten at the Midlands track and would need to brush up his jumping to turn the tables. Full Ov Beans looks to have lost his way while Gougane needs further but it would be no surprise to see Denali Highway improve on his fifth here last month and he's preferred to the disappointing I Can Run Can You.
