Verdict

The one to beat here is VOCALISER, who has progressed well recently and is now on another career-high mark. However, just 4lb higher than winning here last time seems fair and this slight step up in trip should do his chances no harm whatsoever. However, this is no penalty kick with Broughtons Rhythm, now in an easier race, and Ruby Yeats, who may have needed the run last time, the main dangers in a race where few can be confidently ruled out.
  1. Vocaliser
