Verdict

Saytara ended last season with a seven length victory at Newmarket but has a 13lb hike in the weights to contend with on her return. Barbican also makes a belated reappearance and has the beating of Viking Storm on collateral form. Buckland is struggling at present and Genzy was way below his best over 1m2f here last time. Nave has landed a couple of lower grade handicaps in good style but this is tougher while Bishop Roko could figure with plenty of scope for improvement. However, RAWAKI beat a subsequent winner and had the previously unbeaten Clowance Estate further back in third when scoring at Windsor last month and a repeat may well be good enough to come out best in this.
