Verdict

No horse has improved more this season than Tobefair and Debra Hamer's remarkable seven-year-old is bound to have his supporters as he bids for an eighth successive handicap win but this ultra-competitive affair may prove a bridge too far. Impulsive Star is similarly progressive and is a strong-travelling type who should relish the hurly-burly of this contest more than most, whilst Philip Hobbs saddles two live contenders in the shape of Golden Doyen and For Good Measure. Preference, however, is for the lightly-campaigned JURY DUTY who very much caught the eye returning from a break at Chepstow last month when shaping as though there is more to come from him off his present mark.
