Verdict

Not so competitive as the numbers suggest and THINQUE TANK looks the way to go racing off the same mark as when an excellent third at Doncaster last time. Nicky Henderson's Arcadian Pearl could take a step forward on his first venture into handicaps so rates an obvious threat with Motashakel not taken lightly either now back in calmer waters.

  1. THINQUE TANK
