Verdict

Big fields tend to fragment on the straight course here and those drawn low can have an advantage when the ground is riding on the soft side of good. Purcell, drawn 10, has won his last two starts on the Polytrack and his yard remains in fine form. Flyman beat a big field on soft ground on his reappearance over 6f at Doncaster, though finished behind Ayaar over this trip at Newmarket last August and is 4lb worse off. Frankie Dettori's mount makes plenty of appeal of those drawn near the stands rail while Glen Moss, beaten by Georgian Bay at Kempton before going one better against Louis The Pious and 12 others at Haydock, is also interesting. Heaven's Guest, last year's second Bertiewhittle and Loving Spirit filled the first three places in a similar contest over track and trip in the autumn. The latter comes out best at the weights today but REDVERS wasn't far behind that day despite missing the break. Ed Vaughan's six-year-old likes it here and wasn't far behind Bertiewhittle when fourth in the race last year. He's favoured by the weights now and must have a cracking chance after a pipe-opener at Warwick.
