The weights suggest Fishforcompliments and SATWA LAIRD will be fighting this one out. The former has ben threatening a return to winning ways in plating company since returning to the all-weather, but the latter just edges it here. David Simcock's charge has come up short in handicap company on the Polytrack on a couple of occasions this month but looks to have solid claims on today's more favourable terms. The remainder have plenty to find at the weights though Bold Ring and My Lord have gone close recently and make more appeal than the rest.
