Verdict

DRUSSELL is chasing a course and distance hat-trick and has plenty in his favour again. He is upped in class and 10lb higher than for his latest success but Rachel King takes off 7lb again and the ground is ideal. Thegaygardener and Scoglio are returning from a break but Ultimate is interesting as he'll be suited by the track and has been showing signs of a return to form lately. He was second off this mark at Musselburgh last week. Rowlestone Lad could go well off a low weight but Dreambrook Lady and Red Riverman still looks to have a few pounds too much. Pearls Legend won over 2m on soft going at Worcester last summer and may be best of the rest.
