Verdict

Kodicat gained the only victory of her career over this trip and she's been in good heart of late. The first-time cheekpieces could see her over the line if maintaining her recent good efforts. Casterbridge is now 3lb below his Leicester winning mark and ran well over this C&D last time out, ensuring he's on the list. Ambitious Icarus is former C&D scorer who ran well at Nottingham last time to serve notice of his chance but ASTROPHYSICS earns the nod on the back of a good second of his own at Redcar last month. He's been threatening on turf and might now go through with it to win on his AW return. Groundworker isn't exactly consistent but gained his second C&D win in September and is weighted to go well if fancying the job.
