Verdict

The veteran Kames Park has been going well enough but hasn't won for over a year while Layla's Boy's only victory in 39 starts came on Fibresand. The lightly-raced Arte Del Calcio has been running reasonably well over hurdles and reverts to the Flat on a fair mark but Annelko has never won on the all-weather and may need further, a remark that also applies to Born To Perform, who returns after a very long absence. Royal Sea is in good form at this level and is an obvious threat from his lowly spot in the handicap though he's never raced beyond 1m1f. VIOLA DA GAMBA has yet to win a race but as gone well enough in the past to suggest he's capable of taking this under Jamie Spencer, who rides him for the first time.
