Verdict

STOCKTONS WING completed a double over a mile in June and not surprisingly shot up the weights. He was doing his best work at the finish behind Kedleston on his hat-trick bid at Leopardstown, however, and this longer trip should be in his favour. He can return to winning ways though Greatest has shown plenty of ability and should be winning soon. He has a big weight to carry on his handicap debut though that is offset by the 10lb claim of his young rider. Moonshed also makes his handicap debut but hasn't shown much to date while Velocity Of Light is taking a step up in trip after a couple of runs over 7f and enters unknown territory.
