Verdict

Come Here Yew only won a novelty pro-am event at Carlisle last time so Ampleforth makes more appeal with an apprentice negating most of a 6lb penalty for winning at Yarmouth during the week. Almost Gemini has won all three starts on the Polytrack this year, though it remains to be seen if he can reproduce that form back on Turf. But course and distance winner Blackstone Vegas looks to have leading claims on his latest fourth at Warwick. PETELLA won this in 2011 and has been in decent form of late. Placed in better company on her last couple of starts, George Moore's mare can come out best in this marathon once again.
