Verdict

Bassara's progressive form may have run it's course for the year as she ran way below her best at Newmarket last time and Dashing David now looks in the grip of the handicapper. But Bay Knight hasn't had much racing this season and may figure in first-time blinkers while it's too soon to write off Brocklebank after a poor effort at Epsom as he scored at the same track before that. Recent Kempton winner Footstepsintherain makes more appeal than Levi Draper off his current mark but a chance is taken on top weight REBELLIOUS GUEST. The latter finally showed signs of a revival when fifth at Yarmouth last time having tumbled 12lb down the weights this year and it could be the turn of George Margarson's charge today.
