Verdict

Inspirina, Tecktal and Maybe I Wont make the shortlist here with INSPIRINA taken to follow up a last time out success and defy top weight. Maybe I Wont won successive races last month and has a sound chance here, though he has gone up the handicap as a consequence and looked a little one paced last time. He will run his race but needs to come back down the weights. Tecktal has not won since February and has not really threatened until chasing home the selection over this course and distance last time. She was flattered to get within three quarters of a length of the winner and may have to settle for a place again. Inspirina has gone up the weights after winning two of her last three starts, including an impressive win over this course and distance last time. A 6lb penalty does not look enough to stop Inspirina following up.
