Verdict
With the majority of runners struggling to hit the frame at this venue in the last 12 months the John McConnell-trained HAPPAUGUE appears to have an outstanding chance to follow up his win over C&D in January. The second in the race, Rock On Aidan has gone on to win since. Alhajjaj won over C&D last month off a 3lb lower mark and can give another good account here with Ragtime Red who is a winner of two of his 11 starts over C&D, also in the mix. Guiding could surprise if bouncing back to form at a price.
