Verdict

California Rose is going well at present but keeps creeping up the weights without winning and is 9lb higher than her last winning mark. Mr Snagsby has been gradually improving and gained a deserved success here last time, though that was on fast going and he hasn't performed as well when there has been some cut in the ground. Hoppsan ran poorly here in June and it was over 7f when she finished runner-up last time and though Waterloo Sunrise ran very well here recently he hardly ever wins. AMAZING STAR doesn't look an obvious choice but he's been dropping in the weights and a return to this softer surface could bring about some improvement so he can reward each-way backers at a fair price.
