Verdict

Jockeyship is often a factor in races of this ilk and PATTERN MARK, who has the very capable Lee Topliss aboard, fits the ideal case for this race as he has an in form pilot and has won over the trip in the past. Prime Circle has been in good heart this year but has yet to prove his ability over this trip. Join Up has gone up 2lb for a near miss on the all-weather and might be better on artificial surfaces rather than the turf. Boo returns from a spell over hurdles whilst High Five Society hails from a yard that have been enjoying plenty of success of late.
