Verdict

A tightly-knit handicap in which Chepstow-winner MERCURIUS POWER gets the nod given he still looks attractively weighted on the same mark as when a good Brigthon sixth (form been franked). Halcyon Spirit took a step forward in blinkers when runner-up at Wolverhampton and is feared most with the headgear retained, while in-form maiden Power Station seems sure to be on the premises too.

  1. MERCURIUS POWER (IRE)
  2. HALCYON SPIRIT
  3. POWER STATION
