Verdict

Banaadeer had to make up ground after a tardy start at Leicester but just failed to catch the winner. That came over 7f so it's a surprise to see him dropped to the minimum trip for this and TAQUKA is preferred. He didn't get the best of runs when runner-up over today's distance at Warwick last time and is fancied to go one better here. Minley is another likely to be in the mix after a close-up fourth at Windsor when Narborugh was well beaten and Finn Class tries his luck back over 5f after a couple of modest efforts over further.
