Verdict

Lucy Gardner won on Storm Alert at Fontwell last month. He went close at Uttoxeter shortly after but is up another 4lb here and may have to settle for a place behind ALI BABA. Alan King's gelding showed a lot more at Doncaster last time and can reverse Huntingdon running last season with Kahsabelle as Josh Newman is good value for his 7lb claim. Xaarcet was only beaten half-a-length over a shorter trip here last month and Prince Pippin was second at Towcester while Henok was taking on better opposition last season and could figure if fully wound-up.
