Verdict

Commander Patten looks to be facing a stiff task under top weight and Indescribable turned in a shocker at Thirsk last time and may already be in the handicapper's grip. Dittander and stablemate Geological had their limitations exposed last time but last month's Ripon winner Rocking The Boat is probably still on an upward curve and makes more appeal than the exposed Low Cut Affair, who has picked up a penalty for Monday's win in a claimer at Wolverhampton. AL GHUWARIYAH has already won over track and trip, which is a major plus. She followed up at Thirsk and can complete the hat-trick before the handicapper really goes to town.
