Verdict

Another For Joe won this a year ago and though he's 2lb lower here the going was very heavy that day. Wellingrove gained his only success so far over this course and distance and can race from the same mark after a couple of moderate efforts but Dark Ruler ran a shocker at Carlisle last time. Argaki has won three of his last six and finished runner-up in another two. He's penalised for last week's victory but that's unlikely to prove too much of a burden though he may find SIZE just too good for him. Richard Fahey's charge didn't get the clearest of runs at York last time and is better judged on his earlier form where he won three out of four.
