Verdict

Oddysey handles all types of going but is 8lb higher than last month's win at Haydock and that could count against her. ALKADI has been threatening a return to winning ways off her current mark and should have no trouble taking up her preferred position at the head of affairs from a low draw. She's just preferred to Giorgio's Dragon, who went close in soft ground at Thirsk last month and Only Orsenfoolsies, a runner-up on his last couple of starts. Falcon's Reign finished closer in heavy going at Carlisle last time and has claims if the forecast rain arrives.
