Verdict

Resurge won this in 2011 and was beaten over three lengths off a slightly higher mark in last year's renewal. Tres Coronas is up 6lb for his latest win at Chester and Pilgrims Rest is upped in class having finished second at Goodwood last time. Niceofyoutotellme is also facing a stiffer task on the back of a win at Kempton and Boonga Roogeta is 8lb higher than when landing a hat-trick earlier this month and has been well beaten in pattern company since. With doubts surrounding most of these, AREA FIFTY ONE could prove the safest option as he landed a more competitive handicap over course and distance in April and can come out best again despite a 4lb higher mark. Blue Surf and Circumvent have a shout if at their best on their seasonal debuts.
