Verdict

TIMELY GIFT is one of the few that make any appeal. He scored in soft going at Ffos Las recently and a 3lb rise may not be enough to anchor him in this. Lady Longshot has been placed on several occasions this year without threatening the winner while Starlit Night has finished tailed off in both starts since winning at Stratford. The Irish raider Seaboard has had nine starts over timber without success and Just Spot’s chase win at Towcester came back in 2015.
