Verdict

Lots with chances so at the likely odds DIDERO VALLIS is worth siding with to build on his good fifth here 12 months ago off a 2 lb higher mark with his yard firmly among the winners. Huntsman Son made an impressive winning return at Wetherby and this good jumper is fancied to go well too with in-form Springtown Lake and veteran Sametegal also well worth considering in a very open handicap.

  1. DIDERO VALLIS (FR)
  2. HUNTSMAN SON (IRE)
  3. SPRINGTOWN LAKE (IRE)
