Verdict

Several of these arrive in good form, as do their young riders. HAWAANA stayed on very strongly to score over a mile at Doncaster and has no problems with this trip. Declan Cannon has ridden him to victory in the past and can do so again here. Amy Scott was on board when Effigy scored on fast ground at Leicester and soft conditions may have been her mount's undoing at Windsor last month. Amana was raised 8lb for last week's success under Rachael Kneller and with a 6lb penalty is a couple of pounds well in while the veteran Megalala is just 2lb higher for scoring at Brighton. The only C&D winner, Potentiale, cannot be discounted as he latest efforts have been over longer trips.
