Verdict

EMPRESS ALI looks the one to side with in this. She went close to catching Our Gabrial over course and distance last time and can go one better. Nakeeta won a maiden handicap at Pontefract last month and has been upped 5lb for his trouble while Rangi Chase was well beaten on the only previous occasion he attempted today's longer trip. Roskilly is proving better on the all-weather and Charlie Wells makes more appeal in first-time blinkers than Whitby High Light.
