Verdict

Low numbers have easily done best over the past few years and Chris Wall has won it three times. Pearl Blue represents the Newmarket handler but all of his four victories have come with some give in the ground so more rain is required. He was less than 2l behind New Fforest in a similar grade race at Leicester in September but was conceding 10lb and should turn the tables at the revised weights. Taajub was narrowly beaten in this two years ago and arrives with a recent Polytrack success behind him while Fair Value is on exactly the same mark as when successful over the track and trip in 2012, her last victory. Peace Seeker is in decent form but hasn't won from a mark this high while Fitz Flyer has generally needed a run to put him straight though the booking of Kieren Fallon is a plus. SWISS CROSS won a handicap at Wolverhampton on his reappearance but had little chance in a Listed contest at Lingfield last time. He's on a lower mark on Turf and with a good draw he's taken to gain his second victory on the course.
