Verdict

Argaki won this last year and another bold bid is expected after finishing ahead of Cosmic Halo when third over track and trip last time. But HOLD THE LINE could make the journey over from Ireland worthwhile given he ran well for third in a tougher handicap than this at the Curragh last week and will have come on for the outing. That looks stronger form than Lilac Tree's second at Epsom and Hamilton winner Chevalgris hasn't raced for nearly a year. Engrossing is back on a winning mark and should be thereabouts on his latest placed effort at Haydock.
