Verdict

A tough race to weigh up with Bo McGinty and Fromsong returning from breaks, but preference is for the tough front-runner DIVINSKY ahead of Little Edward. Any horse that gets past the selection will know its had a race but this Paul Howling gelding is well-drawn for his style of racing, comes here on the back of a fair third at Lingfield, and is not badly treated on old form. Bo McGinty's record is a bit hit and miss but when he's good he's good, whilst Little Edward diddled up recently at Lingfield in a claimer under today's jockey but has more on the plate here. Lone Wolfe was rewarded for a string of good places efforts when scoring here at the track and the form looks solid. Matsunosuke's style of racing means that this hold-up horse needs luck, Dazzling Bay is one to watch for market support, whilst Jamie Spencer catches the eye as a jockey booking on Ingleby Arch. As competitive a spring as you'll find, with the vote going to Divinsky.
