Verdict

Many of these are running really well without quite managing to get there. Copper Dock has come up against in-form rivals recently but could just be a few pounds high at present and he's no certainty to beat Empirico, who wasn't far behind him last time despite missing the break. Footprint and Charismas Birthday are very closely matched on their run behind That's A Fret here a fortnight ago with preference just for the latter, who is slightly better off. Three-year-olds have an advantage in the weight-for-age scale at this time of the year and FERRYVIEW PLACE looks the one to be on. He was just behind Footprint and Charismas Birthday two weeks ago and has since run well behind Grey Danube so, with more scope than his rivals, he can gain his first success.
