Verdict

Richard Hannon's yard has won three of the last seven renewals and will be expecting a big run from the hat-trick seeking When Will It End. He's gone up 6lb since landing a nursery at Newmarket but can't be ignored. Stec has won his last two over this trip and is another heading in the right direction while Home Cummins, Guiding Light, Shaakis and Special Venture are others arriving off the back of recent victories - all four make their handicap debut today. Muqaawel won on debut at Leicester but was then beaten at long odds-on at Haydock. The latter's trainer, Mark Johnston, has already enjoyed a terrific week and it's too soon to write off GRIGOLO. The Shamardal colt may have been let in lightly on a mark of 72 here having had excuses in two starts since a debut third at Haydock.
