Verdict

Hoh Mike is taken to score at the expense of Strike Up The Band and Manzila. The selection caught the eye when finishing second to Speedy Dollar at Yarmouth last time out. He has been winless this season but has been consistent and if recapturing his recent form he will prove difficult to beat. Strike Up The Band has winning Group 3 form to his name. He won nicely at Ascot on his penultimate run but looked a little exposed off a five pound higher mark at Doncaster last time out so may be within the grip of the handicapper for the time being. Manzilla on the other hand is less exposed and caught the eye when a decent third to Angus Newz at Chester on his most recent outing and is sure to be in the shake up once again. But for the winner we return to Hoh Mike.
