Verdict

A small but competitive field with only Northern Dare easy to rule out. Billy Red may be a shade high in the weights now but is capable in this grade and four-time Polytrack winner Diriculous showed signs of a return to form last time on only his second start after a year off. Lujeanie has been threatening to get his head back in front and is closely matched with recent Kempton winner Breathless Kiss while METHAALY scored over 5f here last time. The latter has won five times at this track now, three over C&D, and on that basis he gets the vote.
