Verdict

Maybeagrey won this a year ago on soft ground but is 7lb higher and conditions will be very different. Java Rose had shown promise in bumpers before a surprise victory on fast going at Chepstow and there looks much more to come as there is likely to be from Playbill, who hasn't performed badly by any means and is on a fair mark. York winner Looks Like Rain couldn't overcome a 6lb rise at Doncaster so this should go to SPECIAL MEANING, who is in superb form and very well in with a 6lb penalty for Sunday's Hamilton victory as the assessor has raised her 10lb.
