Verdict

Quincy Des Pictons is dropped in class in a bid to rediscover his best and he'll figure if doing so. Billy Cuckoo is upped in the weights and in grade as he attempts to follow-up a win at Carlisle and this is much tougher than the race Papa Caruso finished third in at Catterick last time when Categorical was tailed off. Lord Villez is not without claims and is preferred to Lucky Landing but another chance goes to L'ELDORADO. Chris Bealby's charge couldn't cope with Cloudy Too at Wetherby three weeks ago but won at Towcester before that and can return to winning ways back in this company.
