Verdict

Big fields appear the order of the day here and this is another tricky puzzle to solve. Okafranca, Elegant Olive and Sovereign Spirit were all winners last time - the first-named appears the pick of that trip today. Halucha is starting to look well handicapped but Kahsabelle has had plenty of chances and both Pliny and Fortuna Rose have a lengthy absence to overcome. Neither of Jonjo O'Neill's pair, Salpierre or Tarvini, make much appeal and veteran South O'The Border has shown nothing since joining Liam Grassick's yard. Former stablemate CANADIAN DREAMER has been knocking on the door, however, and has more scope than any of his rivals. The step up to 3m should suit and he looks the one to beat.
