This won't take much winning and it would be no surprise to see course specialist General Tufto cutting through this field in the closing stages. Neil's Pride won't get many better opportunities to break her duck and likewise Dewala, though she still has her stamina to prove over this sort of distance. Cheekpieces appear to have improved Destiny Awaits a little but he's another whose ability to stay this far has to be taken on trust so we'll give a reluctant vote to SPRING SECRET, who has won over 1m2f on heavy ground so should last home and did keep on for pressure when fourth at Bath last month.
