Verdict

Hughie Morrison sets a bit of a poser here by saddling improvers Burnham, a staying on third at Ascot last time, and Abundantly. The latter only found Suzi's A Class Act too strong over C&D on similar ground last time and has obvious claims. Astra Hall was a short price to win again at Ffos Las earlier this month but could only finish third to Little Dutch Girl, who runs in the previous race, and is 3lb higher now while Hidden Justice has been knocking on the door though Amanda Perrett also runs dual Polytrack winner Arch Villain. ALEKSANDAR was a long way behind Dovils Date over 1m4f at Newmarket in June but that wasn't his true running and he was more like his old self when second at Yarmouth earlier this month. This longer trip should suit and he can finally get off the mark. Twice Bitten may be the pick of the older horses.
