Verdict

Jojabean wasn't winning out of turn at Fontwell in May but looks to have plenty of weight. Swinging Hawk only beat Presence Felt by a neck at Warwick and is 7lb worse off here but there are possibilities about unlucky Towcester second Squire Trelawney and the lightly-weighted Call A Truce has each-way claims again. Broomfield was a promising third at Exeter following a lay-off but there should be more to come from ANDY KELLY. Emma Lavelle's four-year-old ran green at Stratford last month but pulled right away from a big field in the closing stages and can go on to better things. Union Du Chenet may need more time but is worth noting for future reference.
