Verdict

Bygones For Coins will appreciate the return to a longer trip but not the ground and Humungosaur was still beaten nine lengths when runner-up in heavy going at Chester last time. A chance is taken that FLY SOLO will handle the surface as he's been thereabouts in all three starts and there should be more to come from Alan Swinbanks's charge. Her Nibbs is another lightly-raced sort stepping up in distance after a recent third over a mile at Thirsk.
