Verdict

Another wide-open teaser to end proceedings with the weights headed by Royal Skies, who has had a busy campaign and has been found wanting in this grade in the past. Marju's Quest will have to improve again if he's to complete his four-timer while Plutocracy's winning run came to an end at Bath earlier this month and he has another 2lb to carry here. Urban Dance steps to 1m4f after two wins here over 1m2f but is improving and should give a good account while the filly Bantam was far from disgraced at Salisbury last time, though is another still climbing the weights. VAN PERCY didn't quite get home in the Melrose at York but travelled strongly for a long way and dropping back in trip must be in his favour. His apprentice rider's claim may just tip things his way this afternoon with Amralah preferred to Emerging of the remainder.
