Verdict

This is wide open on the face of it but CAPE EXPLORER looks to have plenty in his favour. He bids for a hat trick after scoring on fast ground over today's trip at Leicester last time and this looks no tougher despite a 4lb rise. It's easy to pick holes with the remainder as Bath winner Highland Duke is upped in class and Hip Hip Hooray has something to prove over the distance having scored over a mile here last time. Mizbah has been running well over longer trips while Hot Spice and Icebuster have the past form to figure but both ran below par on their latest starts.
