Lofgrenb1,t16
711-7OR: 132C
9/4

Has scored from 2m1f-3m2f but this mark looked beyond him last time. Drops in distance and blinkers fitted, but returns to a track where he has gone well on both previous visits.

811-5OR: 130DWS
10/1

Down to his last winning mark for first run following wind surgery. At home in small fields but would ideally want more give in the ground than seems likely.

4/6

Has undergone a transformation under new handler and perfectly at home on the unseasonal ground expected here. This far from competitive but handicapper has looked in charge lately.

711-0OR: 125BFD
5/1

Impressively made all on first two starts in 2017 including chase debut at Kempton. Unable to dominate when dropping to 2m when last seen and absent since. Has won his last three starts following a break and should get an uncontested lead here.

Betting

Forecast

Mill Quest (4/6), Lofgren (9/4), Eyesopenwideawake (5/1), Bishops Court (10/1)

Verdict

EYESOPENWIDEAWAKE is an enthusiastic front-runner who will have a chance to dominate this small field and, unlike Bishops Court, will have ground conditions to suit. The seven-year-old goes well fresh and looks the obvious one to beat.Lofgren and Mill Quest have been in good form lately, but both have failed off their current marks in recent races.
