Verdict

Arab Spring has gone up 11lb since winning at Doncaster and this is a stronger contest. CHANCERY only found Battalion too good at Ripon and will strip fitter here. The third won last week's Chester Cup next time while the fourth ran well in a hot handicap here on Wednesday so the form looks solid. David O'Meara is a leading trainer here and the top weight can confirm form with Media Hype and land this ahead of Doncaster winner Itlaaq and Retirement Plan. Lady Cecil's colt is better than he showed when finishing behind Bute Hall at Thirsk. Gabrial's Star disappointed here on Wednesday but Amralah still has a bit of scope and should be thereabouts again and makes more appeal than Irish raider Shalaman.
