Verdict

Solar Spirit and Mr Wolf are both running well and are both well enough handicapped while trainer John Quinn is enjoying a decent spell so it would be no surprise to see the pair in the firing line. Ryedane has a good record at the track and should go well as long as there's no significant rainfall whilst Avontuur was running well before his break. It appears as though the handicapper has more or less caught up with the front-running Jigajig but that may not be the case with Feeling Fresh who can probably be forgiven his run at Wolverhampton. She has been struggling for any semblance of form but now that her yard is back amongst the winners, perhaps this will be the day that REAL DIAMOND will shine again as she usually saves her best for this track, is well handicapped, well drawn, has a good jockey in the plate and may get the juice in the ground that she craves.
