Verdict

This looks a toss-up between Spinning Bailiwick and DIVINE FORCE with marginal preference for the last named. Michael Wigham's gelding has won four of his last five and the manner of success last time suggested more glory awaits. He'll need a decent gallop and the gaps to appear in time but we're prepared to chance him, despite the fact he races off an 8lb higher mark today. He's looked one to keep on the right side and it's not as if the horse hasn't won over six furlongs, so providing they don't crawl he'll be the one to beat. Likewise Spinning Bailiwick needs a decent gallop, although Gary Moore's charge clearly has gears as she's won over the minimum trip at both Kempton and Lingfield. Her victory over seven last time is therefore all the more commendable and she will represent stiff competition for our pick off this revised mark of 80, indeed it was hard to go against this improving sort. If anything else is to win their performance will merit plenty of respect. Perhaps the most likely to do just that is Weet A Surprise who is closely matched with our pick at these revised weights, although as we've said Divine Force looks set to progress even further. Onceuponatime will surely struggle to beat Weet A Surprise today let alone the likely market principles, so he's overlooked despite holding a consistent profile. Canadian Danehill could put the pace to the race but he's likely to be vulnerable late on, whilst Sir Nod is respected as he's won here off this mark and the yard had a winner earlier this week, but this does look too hot for the eight-year-old. The remaining three runners are easily overlooked and so we return to Divine Force who could have enough to see off Spinning Bailiwick, with the pair by far the most compelling on show.
