Much of Kersivay's chances in this handicap will depend on his run at Kempton on Wednesday so given that variable we will give LOYAL ROYAL a chance at a price with Stanley Goodspeed also looking a danger. Joe Fanning is after the all-weather jockey title this year and he is an eye-catching booking on the selection. Milton Bradley's charge has been solid since scoring off of this mark in October and at the forecast odds it seems worth chancing him again. Stanley Goodspeed has been on form scoring back-to-back victories before an out of character bad run on his last effort. He has a bit to prove after that run but he's capable of better and should be able to put in a bold bid off this mark. Suhayl Star looks value for grabbing some minor money now three pounds lighter than when last winning and while Kersivay will obviously be in with a chance on the back of a good run on Wednesday we prefer Loyal Royal at the likely odds.
