Verdict

Tim Easterby's veteran Ryedane gained his 18th career success when dropped back to this trip in an amateurs' event at Ayr and with just a 4lb rise to contend with has to be on the short-list. Illustrious Prince has raced 30 times but never over the minimum trip while Waking Warrior has yet to win on Turf though did run very well at Doncaster last time. Compton Time makes his handicap debut after starting favourite for a Ripon maiden and running moderately. ART FORM was well supported for a maiden handicap at Ripon on Saturday but ended up on the wrong side of the track. She finished in front of those drawn alongside her and compensation awaits here.
