Verdict

Party Line has tumbled down the weights this season but has something to prove over today's distance as does Moccasin, another on a decent mark if back to his best. Narcissist also steps up in distance but PLATINUM scored over 1m6f at Musselburgh in May and gets the speculative vote on the back of a recent second at Beverley. Languine was well beaten in much better company last time but is preferred to Alsahil back in this grade.
