Verdict

Duke Of Bothwell is one to note in the market but he has plenty to prove in a race where a good many boast solid credentials. FINSBURY is put forwards by us whilst Ask Dan and Soto can be expected to be in the mix. Duke Of Bothwell represents a yard enjoying a terrific season and is unexposed but he hasn't done enough in his three starts to suggest that he's thrown in on his handicap bow; we'll let the market guide us. Ask Dan could struggle back in handicap company from his current mark although he's been running well enough in claimers and sellers to be worthy of consideration. Soto has run a number of decent races in defeat but connections have been struggling to get another win out of him and the percentage call is to take him on given his recent record. Finsbury struggled on his latest outing but he wasn't beaten far on his penultimate start and is 3lbs lower than when last successful. That's a fair reflection of the form that he has shown but he's run well on both starts for this jockey so may be worth chancing. Diamond Fire, No Nightmare and Ros Cuire are worth noting for support in a tight race but we'll opt for Finsbury.
