Verdict

Mick Easterby won this last year and Oil Strike, who is still a maiden on Turf but has won twice on Polytrack, has generally raced at a higher level and is better than his form figures suggest. DISCRESSION has been staying on over 6f on his last two starts, however, and this should be his trip. He's been performing in slightly higher grade and can gain his first success. Eastward Ho needs further, especially on quick ground, but Amoure Medici bounced back to form at Carlisle last time and must have a fair chance from the same mark. Last Destination has won over this trip but appeared to need every yard of Beverley's still mile last month.
