Verdict

UBALTIQUE is upped in class off a higher mark after completing a double with a victory at Catterick last month. But there should be more to come from him and Donald McCain's six-year-old gets the nod. Yorkist's winning run came to end at Musselburgh last time having been raised 17lb for his previous win at Market Rasen. A conditional jockey relieves some of his burden today, but Kudo Country is dropping down the weights and will have come on for a recent reappearance at Kempton. Figaro scored on his handicap debut at Musselburgh and looks a threat while the inconsistent Deepsand has stronger form than that of stablemate Mojolika.
