Verdict

Bold Duke hasn't shown much but the remaining quartet can be given some sort of chance. BERNISDALE has made all for victories at Windsor over 1m2f and around this trip and will love the soft ground. He's likely to take some pegging back and, though conceding weight all round, looks the one to be on. Finity Run won a Beverley seller last month, her only success to date, but weakened quickly on her Polytrack debut at Wolverhampton earlier this month while Guiletta also won at Beverley before being well beaten in two subsequent starts. Breaking The Bank looked as though this trip would suit when he stayed on in a similar race over 1m2f at Salisbury and may provide the main threat.
