Verdict

Donald McCain and Lucy Alexander teamed up to win last year's renewal and a double looks on the cards with LIFE AND SOUL. He came up just short over 2m3f at Newton Abbot when attempting to land a four-timer but is fancied to return to the winning trail back over today's shorter trip. Knight In Purple is less consistent but not without a chance on a going day while Sidney Melbourne is another with leading claims having found only one too good on his last couple of starts. Logical Approach won a lesser contest at this track last time and Orthodox Lad makes more appeal
