Verdict

MICKY MAC is bit of a hit-and-hope selection to round off a tough card; Ryedane also makes appeal at this level, as he is very capable of taking a race like this if he is in the right mood, while Alberto Di Guida is another whose recent profile leaves her with a solid chance - even though she has always struggled to get her head in front on turf; the suspicion that she is much better on the all-weather remains. Call The Law is taken as the best of the rest. He went close in a similar race at Leicester earlier in the month. But as he is 0-from-12 up to press, his willingness to get his head in front is open to question. However, these races are notoriously tricky to assess at the best of times and winning form under the conditions can be a vital ingredient. The selection has held his form well since winning at Nottingham in April and, as he would appear to be a sympathetic ride for an inexperienced jockey, Mickey Mac gets the nod for a speculative punt.
