Verdict

TANFOREN will be having his 99th start here and looking for a tenth career success. He's been raised 4lb for scoring at Chepstow but is still quite well treated and gets the vote. So Wise has shown ability and the booking of Paul Hanagan catches the eye but Media Stars probably need further. Ella Woodcock has a very long absence to overcome and Silly Gilly is looking too high in the handicap. Island Chief has been in poor form but was racing off a mark of 75 at this time last year and is 15lb lower here.
