Verdict

Doubts surround most of these and none inspire much confidence. Incendo has been in better form on the all-weather of late though he hasn't scored on Turf since 2010 and winning hurdler Ivan Vasilevich doesn't look particularly well handicapped on his return to the Flat. Right Step has slipped down the weights but last year's win at Epsom came in testing ground and he was well beaten at the same track last time. ROCK A DOODLE DOO is another looking to bounce back having tumbled down the handicap and he gets a tentative vote having scored off an 11lb higher mark at Kempton last season. Gabrial's Star is dropping back in trip in hope of a revival while Honest Deal has done all his recent winning on the all-weather and is upped in class for this.
