Verdict

A wide-open race with only 5lb separating the field on official ratings and ALWAYS LIKE THIS gets only a tentative vote on her handicap bow. She failed to land the odds over 6f at Kempton last time, but will improve for the longer trip and had today's rival George Guru behind when runner-up at the same track before that. Ferruccio is tried in a visor after being placed on his last five starts but Musselburgh winner Focail Eile makes more appeal dropping in class. Rezwaan and Al Aqabah look in the handicapper's grip, but Greek Islands may be capable of better.
