Verdict

SHAKEM UP'ARRY looks attractively weighted on the form of his Haydock victory and will also be suited by this return to 2m so gets the verdict. In-form Dreams of Home rates the chief threat, especially if a recent wind op ekes out some improvement, while Amarillo Sky and Not Available warrant plenty of respect too in a useful handicap.

  1. SHAKEM UP'ARRY (IRE)
  2. DREAMS OF HOME (IRE)
