Verdict
A 17-runner handicap which will take some solving, but instead of beating around the bush we'll nominate three against the field and hope to hit the jackpot. Assuming the rain keeps off and the ground doesn't deteriorate markedly, the consistent Straight Ash enters the thinking for local trainer Ollie Pears, as does the Ed Walker-trained Singing Sheriff, who was knocking firmly at the door (fourth) in the opener at Sandown Park on Brigadier Gerard Evening. However, the vote goes to the top-weight HIGHLIGHT REEL who drops back into a Class 5 handicap, and has one exceptionally strong piece of recent form in the book (Ripon on 27/04/2019).
  1. Highlight Reel
  2. Singing Sheriff
  3. Straight Ash
