Verdict

Plenty in with a chance although Yarmouth winner Hamble's high draw is not ideal to take up a prominent position. Way Too Hot ran out a cosy winner at Kempton last time and she'll be thereabouts, but Croquembouche will need to improve on his recent maiden win at Beverley to figure. Pride And Joy will also have to take another step forward after landing a handicap at Wolverhampton and preference goes to SHERE KHAN. He improved for being gelded with an easy win at Kempton on his handicap debut and this longer trip looks sure to bring further progress. Stablemate Gold Sceptre, Norse Gold and Royal Academician are others to consider.
