Verdict

Oranger was only beaten a length at Market Rasen after winning at Ludlow and should also be in the firing-line here. Goring Two has proved disappointing this term, however, while Inner Steel returns from a break and Tchang Goon tends to find little in the closing stages and is a long-standing maiden. UPTON MEAD has won twice at Plumpton since the turn of the year but also knows where the winning post is here. He failed to land the hat-trick last time but wasn't disgraced and, with Conor Shoemark claiming 7lb, has to go close in this.
