Verdict

A winner at Windsor in April, Spanish Bounty comes out best at the weights but is too unreliable to have much faith in and BARONS SPY looks a safer option. He won a handicap at Bath on Saturday and, though he seems to save his best for that track, this won't take much winning. Dorback is dropped in grade but has a few pound to find with the selection, while it's no surprise to see the once-useful sprinter Tamagin in this company as he's no longer the force of old. The remaining pair look up against it on today's terms.
