Verdict

Plenty of recent winners on show and ZAITSEV makes most appeal of those. Ollie Pears' charge carries a penalty for a three-length victory in a higher grade handicap at Ripon last week but is taken to go in again with further progress likely. London Bridge and Tajheez scored in lesser company on their latest starts but are also open to improvement and should figure, but Baltic Prince is unproven over today's trip having won over 7f at Carlisle recently. Soft ground may have been an excuse for Astrum last time though he's 5lb higher than his earlier win at Warwick while Rex Whistler can also be given a chance in a competitive affair.
