Verdict

Postmaster and Soulard have a bit to prove at present while Midnight Gold has completely lost his way. Star Beat is likely to need this and Sea Wall has become expensive to follow but Soubriquet looks to have dropped to a decent mark and Cullahill would have every chance if you ignored his latest run at Newton Abbot, where he was never travelling. Solway Bay is still heading in the right direction but so is OSTLAND, who is fancied to defy top weight. He's really come into his own since tackling fences and, though he's only scraped home in his last two starts, is the type that will only do enough and should continue to thrive in this grade.
