Verdict

HERE NOW AND WHY hasn't won on Turf since 2011 but he's generally consistent. He's having his first-ever start on this stiff track but arrives in good form and looks ready to score again. Irish Boy was caught on the line by Mey Blossom over the track and trip last month and will make a bold bid though he could have done without a 3lb rise. Neither Thorpe Bay nor Ace Master have ever won on Turf and both reserve their best for Southwell and though Prignsov Dancer has won here in the past it was a very long time ago.
