Verdict

Any Currency won last year's renewal off a 3lb lower mark and has shown little since. STANDING OVATION bids for a hat-trick after scoring over 3m2f here earlier in the month. There should be more to come from David Pipe's charge and he has a fitness advantage over The Clyda Rover, who landed a double at Exeter early in the year. Buck's Bond was still in contention when falling at this track in May and can figure with a clear round while Top Smart has been upped only 3lb for his win at Exeter in April. Savant Bleu and Seven Woods are others to consider off their current marks.
