Verdict

Minella Present has been up with the pace on both starts to date but unable to find extra at the business end and this softer ground may not help. Mister Chairman can be expected to improve from his opening run at Huntingdon though he was beaten a long way but Flamenco Lad had shown potential in a couple of starts at Exeter before a reasonable effort on Polytrack at Kempton. Keep Presenting has attempted to make all in both starts and not faded until close home so he should get involved along with Theunnamedsoldier, who showed promise when runner-up in very heavy ground here last month. Aribo D'Albain is a French-bred newcomer to note though a chance is taken with another first-timer in SID'S TOPPER, who is bred for this job and whose stable had a couple of winners last week.
