Verdict

The David Evans-trained Ravi River has claims at the weights judged by official BHA ratings but he has not run up to that level for some time and a safer option looks to be ABBONDANZA, who can win his sixth race on the bounce and he gets the verdict ahead of Maison Brillet. Howard Johnson's gelding disappointed at York last time but he was highly tried that day and this represents a big drop in class for thee three-year-old, who has to be respected in this company. Bold Marc has been running to a consistent level of form in handicaps of late and has to be considered in this grade, while Ruth Carr's Classic Descent has similarly been knocking on the door in handicaps but faces no easy task at the weights. Abbondanza has been well campaigned by David Nicholls this term in this grade and he can notch another victory in a claimer and his second at this venue this term.
