Verdict

De Boitron went very close at this track in May but over 3m and stablemate Stagecoach Pearl makes more appeal. The latter found only one too good over track and trip on his reappearance and has been dropped 2lb since. It was the same story for IMJOEKING here three weeks ago when Mwaleshi beat him home, but that was the former's first start since April and Lucinda Russell's charge can come out best today. Rouge Et Blanc was still beaten a long way when runner-up at Exeter last month and Claragh Native is preferred despite an 8lb rise for winning at Musselburgh last week.
