Verdict

There wasn't much market confidence in Douglas at Fontwell last week but he stayed on dourly over this trip to score and could defy a penalty in this grade. But PYJAMA GAME also stays well, as he proved over track and trip in May. With stamina to the fore again here, Rose Dobbin's charge can come out on top as jockey bookings suggest he's preferred to stable companion Sierra Victor. Cilliseal would have a chance if fully wound-up but Solway Dornal invariably finds at least one too good and is a couple of pounds out of the handicap.
