Verdict

C&D winner Classically went close to landing his fifth win at this track on his penultimate start, though he's a little in and out and was well beaten at Wolverhampton last time. SAND SKIER finished well ahead of him in that race and has since gone close on a couple of occasions, notably when running into all sorts of trouble back at Wolverhampton last week. He's given a chance to make amends here and is preferred to Lisahane Bog, who is up 8lb for an easy win in poor handicap over C&D last time. Hurricane Spirit had Understory behind at Lingfield last month and is another to consider along with Ela Gonda Mou.
