Verdict

Ross Birkett was on board when AUTOMOTIVE scored over track and trip last month. He won by over four lengths on that occasion so a 5lb higher mark may not be enough to prevent a repeat. Bountiful Girl finished third in one of these events at Salisbury last time but has something to prove over today's longer trip and recent Windsor winner Minority Interest makes more appeal. Khelac may get involved while both Herod The Great and Samoan have more scope than the others.
