Verdict

Onceuponatime is entitled to win this given that he is 6lbs better off with HARLECH CASTLE for three-parts-of-a-length when they met here last month, but he finds little when it is needed and we think that Jim Boyle's runner may be able to beat him again. The selection has it to do, but last time he was in good form he backed-up a win, and with the yard going well and his own good attitude that might come his way again. An obvious danger is Autumn Blades, also carrying a penalty here for a narrow Lingfield win last time. His only win here came over 7f, however, and as he has largely been campaigned over that trip he probably does not possess enough speed to win this. Green Park won last time but appears to prefer Wolverhampton to here and is taken on on that basis. Xpress Maite is well handicapped on his best form and goes very well at this track, so he would have to be considered a leading player, while Resplendent Alpha also acts on the Fibresand, though he has never yet won on it. He comes from a yard ticking over well enough, but we will just side with Harlech Castle to defy a penalty.
