Verdict

A number of these arrive at the top of their game. Arashi is on a hat-trick after a couple of Polytrack victories. Afro won at Newbury last month and Magicalmysterytour ended a long losing run over course and distance 11 days ago, though doesn't look an obvious sort to defy a penalty. HALLSTATT is another with a recent track and trip victory to his name. He'd have won more easily had he not met trouble in-running and can follow up with Paul Mulrennan in the saddle again. Recent Chepstow second King Zeal also has plenty in his favour and looks a threat.
