Verdict

Susan Gardner has done well with Southway Star and it was soft ground when she won over this trip at Newton Abbot 10 days ago. Micheal Nolan has been on board for her last four victories but the seven-year-old has another career-high mark to overcome today and has risen 48lb in the last 14 months. The lightly-raced Businessmoney Judi should be approaching peak fitness now after a couple of runs and gets soft ground for the first time since winning by a distance over this trip at Newton Abbot in August last year. Pericoloso and the enigmatic Sagredo also have claims but MIGHTY MONTY has dropped to a very fair mark and will be all the better for his run at Uttoxeter in July. He gets the nod as Cadoudalas is probably better over fences.
