Verdict

Sametegal, third in the Triumph Hurdle here in March, has to concede weight all round but is unlikely to fail through lack of fitness. Bayan has rattled up a hat-trick at Perth and Listowel over the last few months but is probably taking on better opposition today and is conceding 4lb to HANDAZAN. A very easy winner of a decent handicap at Chepstow last week when In The Crowd finished tailed off, a follow-up looks on the cards. Leo Luna and Gassin Golf were first and second at Newbury in March when the selection was only third. But they are 7lb worse off here and the placings are expected to be reversed.
