Verdict

Doncaster fourth Idder might be worth another try over this trip. Chester scorer Prince Of Stars is open to improvement but Gothic has now run poorly twice around here and has questions to answer. Samtu ran well at Newbury last month but that was over 1m4f and he's gone back up in the weights again since. Along with Best Kept, RAISE YOUR GAZE was behind Gothic at Goodwood in May but is better off at the weights here and he would have gone close over this track and trip next time with a clear run. Clive Cox's grey can open his account today with Collaboration and Strait Run probably best of the rest.
