Verdict

An open-looking heat and one where Cafe Au Lait is likely to prove popular with punters given his first effort for Dan Skelton here last month. A 4lb rise does not look insurmountable, though nor will it make this any easier and the suggestion is STOLBERG, who drops in grade after a slide in the weights and for whom trip and ground are just about ideal. Yukon Delta should be straighter for his reappearance run and should be capable of getting involved, while Clondaw Westie, Snippetydoodah and Project Mars are others who could have a say.
