Verdict

Decent prize money and a good field assembled for a fascinating middle-distance handicap. DURSTON is going the right way and may well improve again for the drop back from 1m6f having been running on fumes when scoring at Doncaster last time. His juvenile form reads well in the context of this race. There are a host of dangers representing top yards. Gravistas gained reward for consistency last time and will again be thereabouts, while Gabrial The One, Lariat and Prefontaine should also be on the premises. Top weight Waldstern returns after being gelded and will have to be spot on to beat these on his first run for 245 days.
