Verdict

Akarshan doesn't look the force of old while Tzora returns from a break and might prefer better going. Extremely So could go well from near the foot of the weights, however, while Clarion Call is starting to look well handicapped and Seventh Sky hasn't been far away in his last two starts and is probably capable of winning at this level. MINELLA FOR PARTY came up against a decent novice over course and distance last month. That was only his third start over timber and he's heading in the right direction so he could be the answer to this with few of the others having shown any recent worthwhile form.
