Verdict

Take The Crown bids to follow up Thursday's Chepstow victory under a penalty and has every chance of doing so. McCoy's presence will ensure Southwell second Walter De la Mare is popular with punters while Grand Article has been placed three times in this grade in his last four starts. TORGAMAH LAD has been frustrating to follow so far but only weakened at the last over a longer trip at Taunton last month. He was badly hampered the last time he raced over this distance and could be worth one more chance.
