Verdict

A humdinger featuring previous winners Keyser Soze (2019) and Straight Right (2018). Andrew Balding's charge boasts a solid C&D record (125) and remains on a winnable mark despite gamely taking a 6f conditions event at Kempton latest (form franked at the weekend by Harry's Bar). Glen Shiel, Rathbone and Baronial Pride finished first, second and fourth respectively in a recent Class 3 C&D handicap and consequently must enter the thought process, while the admirable Oh This Is Us was a winner on his last handicap start. However, the unknown commodity is the newly-blinkered ALJARI who makes appeal as a horse of some potential for Marco Botti.
