Verdict

DICHOH is in good heart and should go close with a little luck in running; Millfield and Silver Guest are amongst others to consider. The last named has made the most of the handicapper's leniency to return to winning ways at Wolverhampton. He steps up in trip for his return to racing at Surrey which should suit and it was only a little over eighteen months ago that he was finishing a close fourth behind Paco Boy in a Listed race at this track. Millfield has done his recent winning at Kempton but is equally effective here and should go well but he doesn't have any margin for error from his current mark. Dichoh and Ivory Lace are closely matched on their running earlier in the month where the selection finished a length and a quarter in front of the mare. She was held-up and finished strongly so could reverse the form with a better passage but similar remarks apply to Dichoh who didn't get a clear run on that day either. It's heart in the mouth time again for his supporters with his high draw no help but Dichoh's capable of winning this with the right splits.
