Verdict

None of these are easily dismissed. Runninglikethewind, Knight's Parade and Mizyen all posted decent efforts last time and the latter is weighted to reverse earlier running with Marju's Quest. David Simcock's charge is chasing a hat-trick on the back of a cosy win at Yarmouth but steps up in trip off a 6lb higher mark. HAPPY FAMILIES also attempts a longer distance having gone very close at Bath last time and Heather Main's filly is just preferred to last month's Epsom winner Nile Knight in a tight handicap.
