Verdict

Upped in the weights for their latest wins, Nearly Caught and Theology have both struggled subsequently. Asbaab ended last season prematurely with a good run at Salisbury but was tailed off on his reappearance. Esteaming failed to cope with a 9lb rise over 2m at Ripon last time having landed a double before that but at least NOBLE SILK arrives in good form. Although also engaged at Goodwood today, he was beaten only a head over today's trip at Kempton in March and can confirm running with Glenard. He gets the vote if taking his chance. The latter has since finished a respectable fifth in the Chester Cup and may also figure while Entihaa can be given a shout on her recent placed effort behind Villa Royale at York.
