Verdict

This looks a decent contest for the time of year with several of these probably capable of holding their own in better company. Gray Mountain impressed here last month but has been done no favours by the handicapper, though is still preferred to stablemate Bescot Springs who returns from a break. Amazing King also has plenty of weight judged solely on his win at Southwell, while the jury is out on Monogram after a poor effort at Sedgefield. PEACHEY MOMENT has come on in leaps and bounds lately and, back over a longer trip, can complete the hat-trick after wins here and at Kelso.
