Verdict

Velator is 8lb higher than when winning this last year and hasn't had a prep race this time around. Jump City has his sights lowered after contesting a Grade 3 at Kempton but Al Alfa may need confidence restoring after taking a heavy fall at an early stage last time and Ballyallia Man hasn't fired this season. VIF ARGENT left previous form in this country well behind when winning easily over course and distance in February. He's been raised 8lb but has little to fear from Miss Tenacious on the form book and is probably capable of defying his new mark.
