Verdict

TURKO won at Newbury last season and looked to be on the way back when fourth to the useful Chapoturgeon at that track last month. The soft ground is a bit of a worry but the grey is probably the one to beat here if putting in a clear round. Hills Of Aran made a decent debut in this sphere when third at Warwick and has to go on the short-list, while Description won between the flags last month and makes more appeal than Surenaga in receipt of 8lb. Unowatimeen and Island Life look to be out of their depth while Joacci and Officier De Reserve may need their comeback runs.
