Verdict

A big field but plenty of these will be aiming for handicaps marks and it’s one of the penalised runners in BUZZ who holds an excellent chance of following up his initial Taunton success with that form having been nicely franked already. Glory And Fortune remains one who we can be positive about and he will appreciate this ease in grade. Of the newcomers Noble Behest from last year’s winning stable is respected especially as he’s been in good form on the AW of late. South Seas may find this test too demanding as he looks to need a sharp track to show his best. Of the others A New Siege and Eyeofthescorpion are worth watching for the future.
