Verdict

Something of a cavalry charge down the chute and MEDICEAN MAN is the call with Grazeon Gold Blend and Legal Legacy as the alternatives. Jeremy Gask's gelding appreciates genuinely good ground and having stayed on well at Ripon to post victory over six furlongs, we are hopeful that he can handle the extra distance today. Grazeon Gold Blend has the services of 7lb claimer, Ian Brennan. His second in a Beverley claimer represented a step in the right direction. Michael Dods broke his long standing duck with his York entries so Legal Legacy and Kiwi Bay are watched closely in the market. Malcheek has gradually come down to a winning mark so expect him to make a bold bid to follow up his Musselburgh success. Balata will be making late gains as he did when obliging in a Folkestone handicap. Bond City ran much better than his finishing position suggests in the Ayr Bronze Cup and this locally trained runner makes plenty of appeal from an each-way perspective. Handsome Falcon gained an overdue success at Wolverhampton having gone close repeatedly on the turf this season. Former Richard Hannon inmate, Silver Rime, ran his best race to date for new connections and is best of the rest. Cogent cases can be made for many but we believe that Medicean Man is still open to progression.
