Verdict

Robert Cowell's pair, R Woody and Cardinal, are both nicely handicapped but the former hasn't won for a very long time and there are signs that age is catching up with the latter though he'll enjoy the soft ground. Ginzan finished fourth at Bath on Saturday while Olney Lass filled the same spot at Chepstow last Thursday, though is better over an extra furlong. ROYAL REYAH's last two runs were also over 7f but he did win over this trip at Warwick in April when there was plenty of give in the ground. Stuart Kittow's charge may be fresher than most of these and can make the most of the weight he receives from Aye Aye Skipper and last month's Yarmouth scorer Jungle Bay.
