Verdict

Eve Johnson Houghton's Beaver Patrol won well enough at Brighton last month but a 5lb rise for that victory makes this tougher and he looks best passed over. Michael Bell's Regeneration has more to do than when winning at Wolverhampton last time on ground that is probably softer than ideal and of more interest may be Space Station, who is only 3lb higher than when scoring at Goodwood last month. Glenridding and Jeninsky have both been in fair form of late but appear to be a shade high in the weights at present and it may be worth siding with AMBER SUNSET. Last of seven at Folkestone last time, the selection is much better on a soft surface as she showed when winning over course and distance the time before and on several other occasions and she looks worth backing at the likely odds.
