Verdict

Elijah Pepper won this a year ago and gained his first success since over the C&D earlier this month. He'll be difficult to beat but GRITSTONE must be the choice after his recent victory here on his first-ever start on Polytrack. Snow Dancer hasn't been in the best of form though a return to this surface should aid her cause but Mishrif has given no indication so far that he'll stay this trip. Lockantanks invariably performs well on this track as he did twice earlier in the month and he did nothing wrong on his latest start in heavy ground at Haydock.
