Verdict

Half A Billion won a three-year-old handicap on this card a year ago on testing ground and is only 4lb higher so with his rider claiming 5lb he's well enough treated. The veteran Tajneed rolled back the years on soft ground at Newcastle last time and is still well up to this standard while stablemate Indego Blues won't mind the conditions and found 7f taxing his stamina last time. KHELMAN is the only three-year-old in the line-up but looks the one to be on after a very good run at Ayr. His only success to date has come on fast going but he's run well in these conditions and is well enough handicapped. Captain Royale often pops up when least expected and it would be no shock if her were to gain his tenth career success.
