Verdict

It could pay to stick with BOLODENKA here as he came home eight lengths clear of his nearest challenger in soft ground over 7f in similar company at Beverley last week. Today's extra furlong is no problem and he can go in again. I'm Super Too has hit top form now and won a handicap at Hamilton last month, but Hinton Admiral has done all his winning over shorter trips so far. Dr Red Eye has claims dropping down to this level for the first time and Ra Junior is not without a chance on form but may prefer faster ground.
