Verdict

Dingo Bay won this last year and has leading claims again if fully recovered from a nasty fall here on his reappearance. Mr Chippy also has a shout on his best form but he's been off the track for over two years now and INDIAN VOYAGE looks a safer bet. The latter ploughed the mud to finish runner-up at Carlisle last time and is taken to go one better racing off the same mark here. Testing ground is not ideal for Ben Akram and Tresor De L'Isle was well beaten in similar underfoot conditions behind the selection last month.
