Verdict

Three-year-olds have won half of the past 10 renewals and should have the edge this time. Mystery Bet ended her first campaign with a victory on soft ground at York and hasn't had those conditions this season. Mazaaher has been unable to overcome a 5lb rise for his victory at Newmarket but the maiden Markttag ran very well at Warwick last time and, if handling the ground, will be a big threat. MASH POTATO has been going very well at this sort of level on ground with plenty of give and though now 11lb higher than his winning mark at Newcastle he has the benefit of Connor Beasley's claim so gets the nod. Ty Gwr and Ever Fortune look best of the older brigade though both let supporters down last time.
