Verdict

Broughtons Swinger and Eagle Nebula are both chasing hat-tricks but are creeping up the weights and up against a much-improved performer in RAJNAGAN. Paul Webber's French import has already won four times over hurdles this year and justified strong market support when switching his attentions to the Flat at Newbury last month. That's earned him a penalty here but he is still hard to oppose in his current mood. Hot Spice has something to prove after a poor effort when favourite at Pontefract but Laconicos came back to form at Lingfield and has place claims again here along with the consistent Wily Fox.
