Verdict

It may not pay to take the form of Strongpoint's second to Busted Tycoon over course and distance too literally as the winner had any amount in hand though the top weight did finish well ahead of Cool Baranca, who was due to run over a shorter trip here yesterday, and Parson's Punch. A Bridge Too Far has yet to show much improvement for a tumble down the weights while Reaping The Reward was pulled up when favourite here in May. SOLWAY DANDY is a token selection trying this trip for the first time after solid efforts here and at Wetherby as the bottom three are all carrying more than their allotted weight.
