Verdict

Letemgo sprang a surprise at Wincanton last month but this looks a lot tougher off a 5lb higher mark. Sedgemoor Express unseated his rider in that race but went on to finish second to the well-treated Makari over 2m at Ludlow. Hand On Bach is capable of winning races but Ballybach has a long absence to overcome and Kalmbeforethestorm invariably finds at least one too good. OURMANMASSINI has top weight and is still a maiden but definitely has ability and it would be no surprise to see him go close in a race that may not be as competitive as the numbers suggest.
