Verdict

Orsippus, Bourne and Lie Forrit have all tasted success at a higher level in the past and it would be no surprise if any of that trip made a successful reappearance. Malin Bay is on a high enough mark at present but stays further than this and his fitness is guaranteed. He should be in the firing-line again while Marmas still has a bit of scope and Howizee usually runs his race. PURCELL'S BRIDGE was still in touch and travelling strongly when falling at Ayr on his latest start at the end of April. He'd looked to be heading in the right direction previously and is fancied to go very close in this with Shaun Dobbin taking off 10lb again.
