Verdict

Jonjo O'Neill's Rokinhorsescience is better than he showed at Stratford last time having won well here previously but he is hard to back with any confidence after that latest start and preference is for THAI VANGO, for the in-form Nigel Twiston-Davies. Admittedly the selection was pulled up on his most recent start in May but the yard have their runners in better form now and he looks worth chancing at the likely odds. Micky Hammond's Chernik could probably do with some help from the handicapper and of more interest may be Phoenix Des Mottes, who makes his reappearance off what seems a fair mark.
