59-7OR: 71BF
7/4

Front runner returning from a decent run over hurdles. Previously didn't seem to stay two miles on the AW and could be hard to peg back at this shorter trip.

10/3

In form on the AW and took advantage of a slow early pace to win with a nice turn of foot on recent run. More to do under 6lb penalty but race may be run to suit again and should be competitive.

9/4

Not at his best over hurdles but in form when last seen on the Flat last year and should be suited by these conditions without looking overly well handicapped.

Has been racing consistently well on the AW but this is more competitive and may not get a strong pace up front to aim at.

Betting

Forecast

Volpone Jelois (7/4), Desert Cross (9/4), French Mix (10/3), Attain (4/1), Danglydontask (10/1)

Verdict

A tight race with all five runners holding realistic chances. VOLPONE JELOIS gets a narrow verdict as the small field may play to the front runner's strengths and the drop back from further also an added bonus. French Mix quickened well off a steady tempo last time so again may be suited by similar tactics while Danglydontask has strong course form and will love the fast conditions.
