Verdict

Angelic Upstart just got home at Newmarket at the start of the month but is only a couple of pounds higher here and can't be ignored. Windsor runner-up Jack Who's He is feasibly handicapped and recent rain will help his cause while Serenity Spa hasn't done much wrong since beating Savanna Days at Windsor but the second is 6lb better off here and entitled to turn the tables, though hasn't shown a great deal in a couple of subsequent starts. HIPSTER won here twice as a juvenile and looked to be on the way back when third over course and distance last time. He's on a decent mark now and can recapture the winning thread. Whitby Jet disappointed last time but still looks best of the rest.
