Verdict

Lockantanks won a claimer over 7f here last month when just getting the better of Rakaan but is 10lb worse off in this and the latter can reverse the form on today's terms. Mia's Boy and Loyalty are both without a win this year though their best Polytrack form would see them go close while Kingscroft is still burdened with a penalty for his recent win over 7f here despite having been beaten since. Albaqaa and Advanced have both slipped down the weights with the former preferred over today's distance and Alfred Hutchinson is upped in class. GREY MIRAGE finished third here on his return from a four month lay-off. Marco Botti's three-year-old is taken pick-up on his progressive form from early in the season that included winning a decent handicap at Sandown and come out best.
