Verdict

Vinnie Dev is eased in grade from Ascot (Class 2) and could prove capable of defying a penalty at a more realistic level, while the Nicky Henderson-trained Corrany is almost certain to be on the premises if reproducing the form of his fighting Ludlow second to Hurricane Harvey. However, at potentially more rewarding odds a speculative selection is the Ian Williams-trained SOMETIMES ALWAYS. This Presenting gelding has shown ability in both previous starts at Ascot (bumper and a maiden hurdle). He kept on past beaten horses when fourth to Igor latest, form which has been boosted since by both Fred (Kempton winner) and St Barts (Uttoxeter winner).
