Verdict

This looks trappy, but top-trainer Dan Skelton is triple-handed, with MARRACUDJA, who offered more back on his last winning mark at Wetherby last time, perhaps the safest bet. Solomon Grey returns from an absence but is feared, with Pingshou capable if cutting the errors out.

  1. MARRACUDJA (FR)
