Verdict

A poor race that can go to FLANAGANS FIELD, who won well at Chepstow on his penultimate start and upheld his profile with a solid effort here last time out. Amour D'Or and Atlantic Grey are not the most consistent but have little to find to make the rest aware of their presence at this level, while Wolftrap could be an interesting one to note if he makes a quick reappearance (was a huge price at Exeter on Tuesday evening).
  1. Flanagans Field
  2. Amour D'Or
  3. Atlantic Grey
