Verdict

Although Flamingo Beat ran very well at Chepstow he's gone up 3lb for finishing second and is 9lb higher than his only victory at Beverley in May. Aneedh had little to do to beat two rivals at Bath and it was a better effort to be beaten 2l by Lindenhurst at Hamilton. Arr' Kid's best run was on soft ground here so further rain will aid his cause though he looks a bit high in the weights. MAGIC SKYLINE had been running well before getting a poor run at Carlisle and, as she's lightly raced and has more scope than most, she gets the nod.
