Verdict

MUSTAJED won last year's renewal off a higher mark and is taken to go in again under regular partner Philip Millman. Sail Home went close in one of these events over C&D last time and should be thereabouts while Spartan Spirit has been in good form at Kempton and may figure. Now What was only beaten a head at Bath on her latest start and Cuckoo Rock is another to consider having finished a close-up fourth at Chepstow last month.
