Verdict

DOUBLE DISCOUNT looks to have every chance of landing a hat-trick. He arrives on the back of a couple of wins at Haydock with Declan Bates negating a big chunk of a 6lb penalty and can go in again. Enzaal has plenty to find with the selection and he wears his owners second colours in deference to Dairam. The latter steps up in trip after a cosy win over a mile at Beverley and makes more appeal than Jullundar, a runner-up in lesser company at Windsor and engaged at Epsom last night.. Gabrial The Thug remains without a win and is getting no closer despite slipping down the weights.
