Verdict

This is a tough one to call, though That's The Deal will be carrying 5lb more than his allotted weight. Dashing George was unplaced at Newbury on Saturday and had a hard race while Balzaccio has had another three months off since making a fair reappearance after injury over hurdles at Wincanton. Galway Jack is still 8lb higher than his last winning mark, though wasn't beaten far at Fakenham in January. Billy Cuckoo is a course and distance winner and scored at Doncaster last month. But he ran no sort of race at Leicester subsequently. Arthur's Pass and GREEN WIZARD are potentially the best handicapped horses in the race and we'll take a chance on the latter returning to last year's form with a drop back in distance likely to suit.
