Verdict

Louis Steward is enjoying a good season and his 5lb claim on Morning Watch brings the Cecil charge right into contention with conditions expected to suit better than the last day at Haydock. He should still have much more to offer, likewise Mymatechris, awarded success on his second start after an objection. Race To Glory and Shadows Ofthenight are also lightly-raced and could well improve whilst Late Shipment would also be in the mix if coming back to his better early-season form. He didn't run as badly as the result suggests last time either. INJUN SANDS found considerable improvement last time at Doncaster when just failing to reel in Innocent Touch over 1m4f for which a rise of 5lb seems fair. He should progress again as many by Halling do at three and he's the one in receipt of weight all round.
