Verdict

Irish import REALIGNMENT finished runner-up at Sedgefield last month on his reappearance and first start for Donald McCain. This longer trip will suit and he's fancied to get off the mark. Forcefield disappointed over a longer distance last time, but scored over 3m at Newcastle in November and he can figure off a 5lb higher mark, while Seven Is Lucky should have come for his recent comeback and was placed over C&D back in April. The remainder are out of form and hard to fancy.
