Verdict

The four-year-old AKDAM is tried in blinkers and drops into this grade for the first time. He can recapture the winning thread as he was only beaten half-a-length over 2m3f at Fontwell last time and gets plenty of weight from his older rivals. Tony Carroll also runs Southwell scorer Lac Sacre but Stow may be a bigger danger having made all and won easily at Leicester five days ago under 7lb claimer Josh Wall. Persian Herald was pulled up in that race but did have Monroe Park well behind when winning here in the autumn.
