Verdict

Royale Knight looks to be in the handicapper's grip now and the assessor also reacted with predictable gusto to Satou's wide-margin win at Uttoxeter. The grey is on a career-high mark here. No Loose Change is back in the right grade but also possibly too high in the weights while this trip might be a problem for Hell's Bay who, like Sheriff Hutton, has been hurdling recently. CITY PRESS wore down Rockiteer over 2m7f at Stratford last month with Double Chocolate a well-beaten sixth. Warren Greatrex' charge has more on his plate here but looks to be progressing nicely and may be up to the task. Iona Days and Full Of Joy also have a chance but Ballybough Gorta may need another run to put him straight.
