Verdict

King's Wharf looks a shade high in the weights and it remains to be seen if Za'Lan is fairly treated on his handicap debut having won a maiden at Lingfield last month by only a neck. Gabrial's King is going the right way and has won two of his last three starts at this track over shorter trips. He'll go close again if lasting home, but there are no doubts regarding the stamina of EXCELLENT NEWS as she scored over C&D last time with plenty in hand and John Hills' filly is taken to defy a 7lb rise in the weights and follow up.
