Verdict

Postscript won this last year off a higher mark but arrives out of sorts. Skytrain could figure on a going day but only he knows when that will be and Party Royal is also hard to catch right so a chance is taken on ex-stablemate KINGSCROFT. The latter was placed at this track last year off a 10lb higher mark and showed a bit more in a tougher race at York a week ago. Zeftan travels across from Ireland after finishing second at Cork but fast going is a worry for him while both Berlusca and Cape Samba look high enough in the weights.
