Verdict

Plenty with claims in a really competitive handicap. Four times a winner over 7f, Green Howard tries this longer trip for the first time but Vito Volterra, Lady Chaparral, Magic Destiny and Hayek have all won over a mile in soft ground this year and can be given a chance on that basis. Act Your Shoe Size is less likely to handle the going, however, and Noble Jack recorded his earlier double on the Polytrack. ASCRIPTION got off the mark when encountering soft ground for the first time on his handicap debut at Haydock. He's up 8lb but Ed Dunlop's colt has plenty of scope and can recoup a little bit more of his 400,000 euros purchase price by landing this.
