Verdict

It could pay to concentrate on those least exposed in this. Both Invasor Luck and Swanwick Shore make their handicap debuts on the back of promising efforts in maiden company and have to come into the reckoning. But GANGES is preferred after a third in better company on the Rowley Mile course here on his first start handicapping. James Tate's colt finished well ahead of previous Polytrack winner Lungarno Palace and gets the nod. Ice Slice won at Nottingham last month but failed to cope with a 6lb rise last time.
