Verdict

Somerby is only a pound higher than for his sole success on heavy ground at Lingfield last season and he goes on the short-list along with Stafford Charlie, who will enjoy the soft going. But last month's Newton Abbot winner VOLIO VINCENTE is probably still on a fair mark and Jon Park again takes off 5lb. Hector's House is often thereabouts but former course and distance Notabotheronme may be on a downward curve.
