Verdict

Some in-form sorts with three last-time-out winners, including DECENT FELLA and Aqua Ardens who both obliged at this venue. Decent Fella's success came over 7f but the Jordan charge strode right away in the closing stages off a good pace so there should be no stamina doubts about the additional furlong on that evidence. He's fallen to a really tempting handicap mark and should be good enough to defy a 6lb penalty. It's always impossible to rule out Jonnie Skull over this sort of trip in low-grade, good ground contests and this fine servant to the McEntee yard is essential shortlist material, having made all in typically gutsy fashion last time at Yarmouth. However, Aqua Ardens appeals as a stronger danger after putting two poor runs behind him when scoring here last time, stepped up dramatically in trip. Connections may have found the key to him and he looks a danger to all.
