Verdict

Kings Apollo wasn't beaten far over a shorter trip here last time after winning at Ludlow and will be thereabouts off the same mark if he lasts home. Ifyouthinkso, who had Changing Lanes behind last time, will definitely stay but has been creeping up the weights, despite not winning, while last year's winner Earcomesthedream is still 7lb higher. REGAL FLOW handled the step up in distance at Taunton well enough and still has a bit of scope. Caroline Keevil's charge can open his account here with none of the others having shown much lately.
