Verdict

SPEEDY BRUERE looked promising when recording a double here and at Fontwell around this time last year but things haven't worked for him so far this season. He'll never get a better chance to get back on track, however, as a repeat of the form he showed when second at Sandown three runs ago would suffice. Bennys Quest continues to run well but his last two runs suggest he's probably in the handicapper's grip now. Le Bacardy should be the pick of Tony Carroll's pair as he kept on well at Southwell last week when possibly just in need of the run.
