Verdict

STAGECOACH PEARL makes plenty of appeal. He stood little chance behind Master Minded at Ascot last time and ran accordingly, but had scored at Kelso on his reappearance before that with today's rival Sa Suffit back in second. Last year's winning form at Haydock saw him beat Tara Royal and Sue Smith's chaser looks to have leading claims back in handicap company today. Diamond Frontier scored over C&D last time but this is much tougher and Silk Drum as shown nothing so far this season.
