Verdict

Breakheart couldn't quite defy a 6lb rise for his Salisbury victory when runner-up at Chepstow but is running well and must be a threat to all under his regular rider. The last time LUGGERS HALL ran in a Class 5 handicap he scored at Doncaster and he ran with credit at Goodwood last time. With some rain forecast he looks the one to be on and Aldwick Bay, whose last success came on heavy going, could also do with a downpour. Ishikawa has won five times on the all-weather but never on Turf though he remains on a fair mark.
