Verdict

Maven only found one too good here eight days ago and has only been raised a pound. He should be thereabouts again and is preferred to penalised Brighton winner Presburg and Kiwi Bay, who has never won beyond a mile. Pravda Street's best form is also over shorter and he was beaten in a seller at Leicester last time while Nottingham scorer Meetings Man has always been found wanting in this grade in the past. It's a long time since Ripon runner-up Merchant Of Medici was last in the winner's circle so we'll take a chance that a visor bring about a little improvement in SUNNYBRIDGE BOY. Elaine Burke's gelding was only beaten half-a-length at Pontefract at the start of the month and Simon Walker's presence in the saddle more than compensates for a 3lb rise in the weights.
