Verdict

Soprano was racing from out of the handicap when he won this last year and he has a similar task today. He beat Scotswell last season and the latter arrives on the back of a win at Newcastle where he had NIGHT IN MILAN less than a length behind. However, Keith Reveley's charge was having his first start since May on that occasion and is fancied to reverse running and land this on better terms. Howizee is another to consider dropped in class after a good effort at Cheltenham and he has a fitness advantage over Alpha Victor, a winner at Aintree back in May.
