Verdict

Prickles was well backed on her reappearance at Uttoxeter but looked as though she just needed the run. She should be thereabouts in this while Sun Quest isn't without a chance on his best form and Cruise In Style had San Marino, Palio Square, Dukes Art and Quadriller behind when causing an upset at Wincanton 12 days ago, though has more to do now off a 9lb higher mark. Bill The Yank has made the long trek over from Denis Quinn's County Clare yard and must be feared but DRUMLANG completed a double at Uttoxeter and Market Rasen around this time last year and can repeat the trick after scoring on his reappearance at Huntingdon two weeks ago.
