Verdict

A decent contest in which Cohesion and Watersmeet both bring solid AW staying credentials to the table, whilst the former John Gosden-trained Cape Cova is one to monitor in the market on his first start for Mick Appleby. All that said, the best angle into this race may be to take a chance on the stamina of MOUNTAIN BELL. Ralph Beckett's lightly-raced gelding appeared to be crying out for a longer trip when a staying-on fourth in a 1m4f Kempton Listed event last month and, if seeing out the extra, he can exploit this drop in class.
