Verdict

A maximum field on the straight mile will almost certainly split into two groups and any selection is going to need luck in-running. Four of the last seven winners have started at 20/1 or longer so the market isn't necessarily a good guide, though there has also been some gambles landed in the past. Kieren Fallon's mount FIRST FLIGHT could have a good draw in stall one and gets a tentative vote. He finished behind Chatez and Zarwaan at Haydock last month but today's quicker surface should be in his favour and he's also better off at the weights. Hors De Combat quickened nicely to beat Born In Bombay and Lyn Valley at Newmarket and also deserves a mention. Easy Kempton winner Idea may still be a step ahead of the handicapper but Table Rock is shooting up the weights and will surely struggle to reverse Limerick form with Third Dimension on worse terms. Ger Lyons' gelding has a chance if handling conditions' however, and both Richard Hannon and Mark Johnston are mob-handed. The latter's Ifwecan won easily at Mussselburgh 12 days ago, though has a lot more on his plate in this.
