Verdict

Today's going looks against Engai, but there's plenty of others with claims. Arkaim was still in contention when unseating at Catterick and can figure with a clear round while Proud Times opened his account over fences at the same track last time and has a shout. Little Jimmy is only 3lb higher than when completing the last leg of a treble at this time last year and Stormhoek isn't out of this either. However, MASSENA's first victory over the larger obstacles came over track and trip last month and Venetia Williams' charge gets the vote to follow-up with further progress likely.
