Verdict

It's interesting that Harry Skelton has chosen to ride Popaflora in this as he could probably have done the weight on Hinton Indiana, who was second over track and trip in May, though the latter is racing from 5lb out of the handicap. So is Minella Bliss but top weight Strumble Head is better than he showed at Ffos Las last month and Mission Complete responded to a typically forceful McCoy ride to get the better of Cruising Bye over course and distance on his latest start. He's 5lb higher but can't be ignored. GREEN BANK is back in the right grade after getting outpaced at Aintree. Ryan Hatch's claim can see him back in the winner's circle for the time since August last year.
