Verdict

TOBACCO ROAD was beaten only a length despite finishing fourth at Sandown last time. This looks less competitive and he gets the vote on that basis though plenty of others have a shout. Epic Battle can figure off a 3lb higher mark than when scoring at Pontefract and Raskova scored easily at Nottingham last time, though she has a 9lb hike in the weights to contend with. Eurystheus got his head in front at York last month while Headline News has the beating of Tinshu on collateral form after finishing a close-up fourth at Windsor.
