Verdict

Many of these are old pals and have bumped into each other on numerous occasions. The classy and generally consistent Six Of Hearts doesn't have a brilliant Polytrack strike-rate but ran very well behind Duff here three weeks ago and can never be ruled out. He had The Reaper a short-head behind that evening with Tornadodancer just behind and it's the latter who comes out best at these weights despite an incredible 9lb rise for that effort. Five Star Junior has been running well enough on turf this summer but is better on Polytrack as a 7lb higher rating indicates though it's fellow UK raider WHAT ABOUT YOU who catches the eye at the bottom of the handicap. Richard Fahey's charge, a winner at Wolverhampton last November, has been competing in very tough handicaps on turf and looks to be well in for his return to Polytrack. Fahey also runs Johannes, who has dropped in the weights after a long barren spell. while recent winners My Girl Anna and Flic Flac are others to consider in a wide-open event.
