Verdict

KAJAKI is 2-2 over timber and we may not yet have seen the best of him, so despite having to give away weight all round he is a fairly confident choice in a race where a number of his rivals have questions to answer. Nendrum was clear when falling 2 out here last time but is up 7lb and won't be given as much rope this time, while there are stamnina doubts for Iconic Belle and Ballynanty. Green Zone is at the right end of the weights and may not be far away if recovered from his recent tumble.
