Asian Spice (11/4), Ito Ditto (3/1), Fourofakind (11/2), Gerard Mentor (7/1), Orchard Grove (9/1), John W Creasy (11/1), Max's Champ (12/1), Heure De Gloire (14/1), Interne De Sivola (22/1), Flamenco De Kerser (25/1), Stopherandgo (28/1), Universal Secret (33/1), Tribesmans Glory (66/1)

Verdict

ASIAN SPICE took a big step forward on her handicap bow when getting off the mark over C&D and a 6 lb rise in the weights doesn't look sufficient to prevent Jimmy Frost's mare from following up. C&D scorer Gerard Mentor comes here in good nick and is next on the list ahead of recent Chepstow victor Ito Ditto. Orchard Grove is worth a market check after a long absence too.

  1. ASIAN SPICE
  2. GERARD MENTOR (FR)
  3. ITO DITTO (FR)
