Verdict

Party Doctor comes out best at the weights but hasn't raced since 2011 and it doesn't bode well to see Hawk Mountain make his reappearance at this level. Just Lille will have come on for her recent return to action and course specialist Eijaaz has claims having finished just ahead of Roc De Prince in a handicap here recently. ROYAL OPERA won over 1m6f here last month but was predictably well beaten in better company at Beverley last time. Brian Ellison's charge gets the nod dropping back down in class.
