Verdict

First Friday ran well in handicaps over this trip before finding 2m beyond him in an amateurs' race a fortnight ago. Alghanem has a poor strike-rate and looks as though he needs further but Clare Harrier stayed on strongly to catch Lord Kenmare last month and a 4lb rise doesn't look excessive. All About Alfie is 9lb higher than when landing a poor contest here in October and was well beaten in his only subsequent start over hurdles. Akinspirit has been steadily dropping to a mark he looks capable of winning from though he was just behind Armed Guard and ONLY ONE GALILEO when that pair occupied the places behind the prolific Waving three weeks ago and it's the latter, who was making his handicap debut and having his first run since October, who looks the one to be on.
