Verdict

Baizically could only manage third in similar company at Worcester last time and will need to step up on that to make the trip over from Ireland worthwhile. The same comment applies to Merrydown Vintage but DUKEOFCHESTERWOOD won at Southwell in May and hasn't been disgraced in a couple of subsequent outings. This looks easier than his latest third at Market Rasen and he gets the vote. Raifteiri posted a better effort at Perth last time but Cloudy Dawn looks a bigger threat after hinting at a return to form at Hexham on his latest start.
