Verdict

Dormouse went close off today's mark at Lingfield in November and must have a chance with Kieron Edgar taking off 7lb. Dubai Glory is lightly-raced and could figure if fully wound-up while Latest Trend is starting to come down the weights again and was third in a Ludlow claimer last month. DOUBLE HANDFUL is eased in grade and caught the eye on his latest outing at Kempton. He's run well on fast ground before and gets the nod ahead of Guards Chapel, who has been running well on the Polytrack and is easily the pick of his stable's two runners. Sun Quest is a previous course and distance winner but hard to predict nowadays.
