Verdict

It looks safe to ignore both Cool And Clear and Princess Cammie on today's terms and Just Past Andover continues to regress but there's not much between the remainder. Triple Aitch and Bapak Muda have been racing over further while Elusive Gold has struggled in handicaps since scoring at Lingfield in April. EASTERN DRAGON won at Wolverhampton in the same month and finished four lengths ahead of Grace Hull when third at the same track last time. Michael Scudamore's charge gets the vote in a tricky opener.
