Verdict

Had the ground not been as heavy then top weight Judicious would have had every chance in this. Amazing Blue Sky returned to winning ways over this trip on soft ground at Haydock while Eshaab won on the heavy at Pontefract last month and should be thereabouts along with fellow three-year-old Party Line, who is now blinkered. Brian Ellison runs three in this with Hakuna Matata re-routed having been denied a start here yesterday. Union Island looks to have his fair share of weight but RED INCA still looks fairly treated despite having been raised 4lb for his second at Ayr. He doesn't always find much once he hits the front but that may not be as much of an issue as normal on this ground.
