Verdict
A wide-open renewal of this race but it's MELTING DEW who makes most appeal after hinting at a return to form at York last time out. He's feasibly handicapped on the best of his form from last year and represents a trainer enjoying an excellent season. Corelli has been given a fair chance by the handicapper after another smart effort last time out while Alright Sunshine gave the impression he's still improving and is respected in his hat-trick bid.
  1. Melting Dew
  2. Corelli
  3. Alright Sunshine
