Verdict

Exclusive Waters is only 4lb higher than when an easy winner at Southwell last time and Callum Shepherd claims 7lb. But he's yet to show anything on Turf, which is a worry. Tenor won at Lingfield on his first start for John Ryan but then disappointed at Wolverhampton. Myboyalfie was fourth at Windsor and starting to look well handicapped but could find this ground too lively. HEAVY METAL won the Richmond Stakes as a juvenile but the handicapper gave him little to chance to add to that success last year. He's now 28lb lower than at this time last season, however, and Mark Johnston has found him a good opportunity here.
