Verdict

This is no better than the previous division. PLOUGH BOY has at least won a race before and went close at Lingfield three weeks ago. He's a speculative selection ahead of Palace Dragon, who drops back in trip after making his seasonal debut over 1m2f at Lingfield where he finished fifth. Cascadia has been placed on this surface before though both earlier wins on the all-weather came on the Fibresand at Southwell. Celestial Knight has shown nothing so far this year but may do better returning to the Polytrack.
