Verdict

Four of these arrive in winning form but Mighty Whitey scrambled home in a Hexham seller before scoring over fences. Mojito Royale was recording his eighth career success when beating a big field on fast going at Gowran and an 8lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run with his rider claiming 5lb. Dubawi Phantom was sent to Uttoxeter to gain his third hurdles victory and is still well treated but it's the youngster SNOQUALMIE CHIEF who catches the eye. Gordon Elliott's charge has taken some time to find his form but did so at Perth last month and though A P McCoy won't be available this time Paul Carberry is a perfect replacement and a follow-up looks on the cards. The Black Russian may just need this after a long break but is one to note with Galway not too far off.
