Verdict

All have claims but SAN DENG is in great heart this year and has struck up a really good rapport with his young conditional pilot. The pair just failed to reel in Andreo Bambeleo at Hexham this month with the rest well beaten off and can go one better here in receipt of plenty of weight from all rivals. Ascendant remains lightly-raced but retains ability as exemplified by a pleasing second to Texas Holdem at Carlisle last month. That effort puts him right in the mix whilst Word Of Warning is not ruled out if ready after an absence of over seven months. Diklers Oscar and Chester Lad looks to have plenty of weight.
