Verdict

Hamelin easily won a Kempton maiden last month but the handicapper has done him no favours here. My History is even less exposed but probably didn't beat much at Beverley and a line through the second suggests Lineman has a bit to find with Hamelin on the book. Pompeia has ability but looks to be treading water off her current mark and we'd like to give another chance to DON PADEJA. He didn't run badly over 1m6f at Salisbury last time, despite pulling hard. But is back over his winning track and trip today and can recoup losses. Lisa's Legacy, Sunblazer, Ice Pie and Mr Fitzroy also started favourite last time but a bigger danger could be Shamaheart, who was taking on stiffer opposition at Goodwood last time.
