Verdict

While a lot of the best form comes from towards the top of the weights, it may be worth taking a chance on one in Blackyellowred. The seven-year-old took a sizeable step back in the right direction last month and only a 2lb rise suggests he is being given another chance by the handicapper in this. Romella isn't seen that often but typically runs her race off this mark and the absence shouldn't be much concern, while the likes of Old Town Road and Ilikehim suggested they were on the right pathways with their latest encouraging efforts.
