Verdict

VALCO DE TOUZAINE faces his stiffest task to date but beat a subsequent winner over this trip at Leicester last month and may be good enough to complete his hat-trick. Ahyaknowyerself looks a danger on his second to Open Hearted at Bangor as he will have learned from that while Mwaleshi wasn't disgraced in trying to give 6lb to the promising Eduard at Carlisle. Rockawango will need to improve markedly on his victory in a Catterick novices' handicap to figure here and Noche De Reyes makes his chasing bow against decent opposition.
