Verdict

This looks a strong renewal of the Chesham on paper, with four once-raced winners joined by some equally promising sorts that seem destined to improve markedly. Modern News beat an expensive stablemate on debut at Newmarket and has scope for better for his in-form trainer while the filly Concessions can also build on her Chelmsford win. Battleground didn't win on debut but Aidan O'Brien sends him here and that's notable given his recent Chesham record. Similarly, GOLDEN FLAME was second on debut at Haydock recently but that should prove a great learning aid for him and the Mark Johnston inmate can thrive over this stiff course and with his battling skills already sharpened.
  1. Golden Flame
  2. Modern News
  3. Battleground
