Verdict

Memory Styx has had plenty of chances but finished runner-up yet again at Nottingham last time and a couple of these could improve past her. Simply Black is one as she did better when second at Carlisle recently but INSTANT ATTRACTION is preferred. Kevin Ryan's colt stepped up on a modest debut effort to claim the runners-up spot at Sandown last month and can go one better in this. Gym Shoes is a half-brother to three winners and as such is preferred to fellow newcomer Boy Ranger.
