Verdict

Captain Henry had dropped to an incredibly low mark when beating BLEWIT here three weeks ago but a 7lb rise coupled with the latter's obvious scope suggests he will have his work cut out to confirm the form. The runner-up was having only his fifth start and looks ready to go one better. Heroine Chic is another lightly-raced type likely to make good progress and this longer trip will suit while it's about time The Frog Prince was winning a race and he came very close when just touched off by Mutasareb last time. Coppers is another long-time maiden who will surely find a race in the not too distant future having twice been placed from this mark over the C&D recently.
