Verdict

ABBONDANZA and Advanced stand out at the weights and the former is marginally preferred. Noel Wilson's seven-year-old has a good career strike-rate of 10 wins from 35 starts, including three here. His last success came in a 7f handicap at this track, last May, when he was rated 4lbs below today's 108. His form tailed off later in the summer, but we can dismiss that as we know that this track and a break should see a different horse and he can score. Conversely, Advanced does not win too often, having done so on just five occasions from 42 attempts. This trip is tried for the first time, and pedigree suggests that he should get home, although he does have it to prove on the track. Dalradian won't be stopping and the gelding has enjoyed all three of his victories here, including one over 10f last time out. He looks still to be progressing, but at the weights he will need to do so quite markedly to win. Little else makes serious appeal given how the weights are framed and Abbondanza gets the nod.
