Verdict

Eastlake was much improved last season but the handicapper appeared to have his measure at Ayr on his final start. Easier ground is a big concern for Tipperary fourth Boxer Beat while it may also be too soft for Kings Grey but STAGECOACH PEARL ran well on his reappearance at Wetherby. The latter is 2lb higher here but still fairly treated on the best of his form and Jonathan England takes off 5lb. He can get the better of May's Sedgefield winner Ballybriggan and the returning Have You Seen Me. Great Oak and Anay Turge have been hurdling recently.
