Verdict

Carrying a 6lb penalty and upped in grade, ALMATY EXPRESS wouldn't normally be a strong fancy. However, today's opposition don't exactly get the pulse racing and John Weymes' course specialist can follow up after winning again here last week. Emiratesdotcom won at Ffos Las last month but has struggled off today's higher mark since, but Rainy Night went close here on his penultimate start and had today's rivals Elhamri and Takajan well behind when scoring at Nottingham earlier. Fantasy Fighter looks unlikely to repeat last year's win in this contest given his current poor form.
