Verdict

This is easily the best race on the card as all 12 intended runners already have at least one win under their belt. Chasing a four-timer, Greyfriars Drummer may find it tough under his welter burden but Princely Player looks a decent stayer in the making and won over 2m3f on soft ground at Exeter in May. Pippa Greene finally came good at Fontwell last time and the likes of Cabimas and Wheres The Hare are open to improvement but this may be too tough for the mares Wilde Ruby and Moulin De La Croix. The trip could be a problem for Brick Red and Frizzo lacks a recent run so we'll take the progressive CALL BACK to score again. He had little to beat at Cartmel last time but an earlier win at Kempton and second at Aintree was decent form and it's significant that Donald McCain is keeping him going throughout the summer.
