Verdict

Rockfella was a very game winner at Salisbury last month when Hawridge Star was back in third. The latter is 5lb better off here but isn't getting any younger and often runs his best races fresh. Uphold will handle conditions better than most but gets little respite from the handicapper while Mohanad, though fairly consistent, prefers it a lot quicker than this. Cotton King is much better on the all-weather so we'll take a chance on LADY AMAKHALA. She's a rare runner here for Middleham handler George Moore and a repeat of her neck second to Secret Tune on heavy ground at Doncaster in April would probably suffice.
