Verdict

Charlie Em has done her winning on quicker surfaces and Silent Footsteps has something to prove over the longer trip. Ingleby Symphony scored in heavy going over 7f at Ayr last time and should stay today's extra furlong but TOPAMICHI looks a safer proposition. He won over today's trip in the mud at Carlisle last month and appeared not last home over 1m2f at Nottingham when last seen at the track. Mark Tompkins' charge gets the nod in this with Scepticism perhaps best of the remainder.
