Verdict

Gilzean won by 10 lengths at Fontwell last month but was raised 9lb for that effort while Kilrush carries a 7lb penalty for his victory at Worcester. This may be too far for Great Hero, who isn't really getting any closer, and Salpierre and Big Sound arrive out of sorts. The ground may be too fast for Elegant Olive but it will be perfect for GO AMWELL and the handicapper has given John Jenkins' 10-year-old a big chance today. His last three victories have come over course and distance on good going and he's 21lb lower than the last of those. A recent fifth at Plumpton suggests he still retains some ability.
