Verdict

Kimbali has been picking up lower grade contests including a double over 7f at this track. But he's upped a further 6lb while Fajry showed worrying signs of temperament at Salisbury when looking to have every chance. He seemed reluctant to go past those in front and finished only third. BERLUSCA's good effort at York last week is arguably the best recent form on offer. He gets the vote on that basis with Sublimation returning from a lengthy absence and course regular Shadowtime, looking to win this for the third time, perhaps best of the rest.
