Verdict

WISEMAN'S DIAMOND likes this track and showed herself in good spirits when scoring at Ripon earlier this month. She's a tough mare and a 4lb rise shouldn't prevent a follow-up. It's a very long time since the veteran Hard Rock City won a race but there's no doubt he's slipped to a mark he's capable of winning from in this sort of company. Lujano was a major disappointment at Wolverhampton on Monday after a very good effort at Redcar previously but El Dececy is just 1lb higher than for his last success on turf and has won from much higher marks on Fibresand subsequently.
