Verdict

MARKOV shaped well on his handicap bow at Doncaster, and is wholly unexposed at staying trips, so appeals as capable of defying an unchanged mark. Beneagles is another lightly raced sort who should have more to offer in handicaps, while Puffin Billy is the class act in the race, and it would be no surprise if he were up to defying a lengthy absence.
  1. Markov
