Verdict

CLON BRULEE ran out an impressive winner in soft ground at Newmarket last time with Tinghir back in third. He also carried top weight on that occasion and today's apprentice Mikey Ennis negates a 7lb rise in the weights. Ajmany keeps threatening to land one of these valuable handicaps but the going is a worry for him while this is tougher than the Ascot contest Forgotten Hero won last month. Mount Shamsan is upped in class after scoring at Ripon but has plenty of scope and makes more appeal than prolific Polytrack winner Treasure The Ridge and recent Ripon runner-up Calm Attitude.
