Verdict

York fourth Mass Rally was only beaten a head in this last year but the ground will probably be a lot quicker today. Body And Soul could only finish fourth when well backed for a valuable handicap at Musselburgh last time while Hitchens may be starting to feel his age and this is a step up in grade for impressive Chester winner Sir Maximilian, though that victory is working out well. Danzeno was another to start favourite for a hot handicap last time but he stopped quickly once headed so also has a bit to prove. Only one three-year-old has won this since 2006 but SAAYERR must go close if running up to the form which saw him finish only a length-and-a-quarter behind Irish 2000 Guineas runner-up Shifting Power at Newmarket in April.
