Verdict

SOUTH STACK stayed on strongly to score on his first start for Kim Bailey at Towcester last week. As that was a conditionals' race, he can race off the same mark here and should take all the beating under Charles Greene if that effort hasn't taken too much out of him. Aureate and Le Grand Chene both have each-way claims while Fashion Week pounced late to score over 2m6f at Newton Abbot last month and should be a factor again if handling the going. The rest, though, look a modest bunch.
