Verdict

It could pay to stick with OFF ART in this. He's progressing at a rate of knots as a cosy win at Doncaster last month proved and a 5lb rise may not be enough to prevent Tim Easterby's colt landing a hat-trick. Hay Dude couldn't cope with the step up in grade last time having won at Haydock before that and Steelriver never figured in this company on his latest start. But Royal Prize has claims after going close at Newmarket a fortnight ago with Country Western just behind and he's preferred to Sublimation, a maiden winner at Ripon last time.
