Verdict

Toga Tiger is unbeaten in three previous starts over course and distance and Aqua Ardens is another Brighton specialist worthy of consideration, despite failing to beat Lunar Deity last time, but four-year-olds have won the last three runnings of this popular handicap and BROCKLEBANK can carry on the trend. Simon Dow's charge did well to win an apprentices' race at Ascot last month as he reared when the stalls opened and lost several lengths. Runner-up Kinglami franked the form at Windsor earlier this week and a 4lb weight rise doesn't look excessive. Enriching was only beaten a short-head at Lingfield 11 days ago while Party Royal and Exceedexpectations should be thereabouts again but this looks too competitive for Raging Bear and Decent Fella let supporters down at Newmarket last time.
