Verdict

Portmonarch went close at Lingfield last time and has claims along with recent course runner-up Grendisar. Flying Tempo looks high enough in the weights now while Keep Calm and Grayswood have something to prove stepping up in trip. Warrigal may bounce back after a disappointing reappearance at Doncaster but the vote goes to Luca Cumani's MALLORY HEIGHTS, beaten a couple of lengths at Windsor on his handicap debut and racing off the same mark today.
