Verdict

LIGHT BURST has hit form with a vengeance and followed up a win on the Polytrack with an eight-length victory at Brighton a week ago. He looks well of the handicapper and a 6lb penalty is unlikely to prevent him going in again. Daruband won at Newmarket the last time he raced at this level and has claims along with Hurricane Lady, another dropped in class and capable of going close. On the other hand, Dynastic was all out to win by a head in this grade last time and Buckland has found one too good in similar company of late. The lightly-raced Broxbourne can only improve on her comeback run at Newmarket but she finished last and may need more time.
