Verdict

KING OF TONGA hasn't been at his best this year, but he keeps edging down the weights as a result and a chance is taken on him to gain his first victory of the campaign. The very useful 5-lb claimer Ray Dawson is booked, and he can bounce back from a below-par run here on Thursday. Ascension looks the main danger following his recent Newmarket success, ahead of Harrison Point and National League.

  1. KING OF TONGA (IRE)
  2. ASCENSION
  3. HARRISON POINT (FR)
