Verdict

Soft ground suits old-timer Desperate Dex and he won on his reappearance last season, though is 26lb higher today. Very Stylish is back on a winning mark and could figure if in the mood but Danandy has shown nothing over fences so far and Lough Coi was beaten a long way at Chepstow on Saturday and has found this longer trip beyond him in the past. Listen Boy is lightly-raced but has a bit to find on his form of last season to defy top weight here and more interesting is MILO MILAN. He thrives on soft ground so we'll take a chance that he's fit enough to do himself justice on his first run since February.
