Verdict

Bollin Greta won over C&D on her penultimate start and wasn't disgraced in a Listed contest at Newmarket subsequently. Spifer should now be approaching peak fitness and Northside Prince was just denied off this mark at Carlisle last time and Garry Whillans again takes off 5lb. SIR GRAHAM WADE came with a wet sail to win a valuable handicap at Goodwood last week and is improving at a rate of knots. It will be a big surprise if he can't overcome his penalty and land the hat-trick in this, though a market move for the lightly-raced Samarkand could be significant and Edmaaj and Tartan Giga are both useful on their day.
