Verdict

BLACK TULIP gets the nod from the champion jockey after a winning start in handicaps last time at Stratford. He was going well at the finish in that contest and a 7lb rise looks fair now. He may be given most to worry about by Lets Go Duchess, who was competitive off this mark last time at Newcastle having won there previously and looks sure to go well now over this longer trip. Last year's winner Popping Along has not threatened since while handicap debutants Strangsmill and Undisputed are worth monitoring in the betting.
  1. Black Tulip
  2. Lets Go Dutchess
