Verdict

Hot Rod Mamma goes from strength-to-strength but she's now 44lb higher than when her winning run began and has gone up 12lb since scoring against weaker opposition over a shorter trip at Thirsk earlier in the month. The odds must be against her completing the six-timer. Emirates Dream will be all the better for his run at York but Mirrored disappointed at Doncaster after chasing home Scrapper Smith at Ripon and lacks consistency. Three-year-olds Seattle Drive and Las Verglas Star could be interesting, however, and Space War finished second in an above-average claimer at York 11 days ago. NORTHSIDE PRINCE is 7lb higher than when just touched off in this 12 months ago but he's been lightly-raced this year and may be fresher than most. The soft ground won't be a problem and Alan Swinbank's charge can go one better now.
