Neville's Cross (11/10), Shah An Shah (9/2), Premier D'troice (9/2), Storm Home (11/2), Dadsintrouble (16/1), Fontley House (22/1), Dawn Raider (80/1)

Verdict

NEVILLE'S CROSS showed much improved form in line with the longer trip/switch to handicaps when scoring on return at Uttoxeter last month, winning with plenty in hand. There is more to come from Tom Lacey's 5-y-o and he can defy a 9 lb higher mark. Premier D'troice and Storm Home both arrive in good form also and can give the selection most to think about.

  1. NEVILLE'S CROSS (IRE)
  2. PREMIER D'TROICE (FR)
  3. STORM HOME (IRE)
