Plenty of exposed chasers here with the exception of PRESENTING FOREVER, who gets the vote. The six-year-old stays at least this far and showed promise in a couple of starts before running a bit flat in the spring. He has won when fresh and acts on good ground, so we will take the chance that he can go on this slightly faster surface. Rifleman's abilities are there for all to see and he might struggle again from this mark, but does at least act on good to firm and stays well. Conditions suit Stagecoach Amber, who has not yet proved himself beyond 2m 4f and has to do that to win this. The assessor appears to have the measure of Chorizo for the moment.
