Verdict

TESTA ROSSA had slipped down the handicap and took advantage at Ayr last time. He remains on a decent mark despite a 4lb rise and can go in again. Staffhoss is similar in that he too has tumbled down the weights and showed a bit more when third on his latest start. Royal Straight landed a double at Ayr back in 2012 but hasn't won since and Ellaal makes more appeal having won three times already this year and drops back down in class for this.
