Plenty with claims in this. DOLPHIN ROCK ran well for second in a soft-ground race at Redcar and won't be far away under similar conditions. Copperwood also has claims on his latest run at Windsor while Duster could get involved if lasting home having scored in heavy ground over 7f at Folkestone last time. Shifting Star and Maverik have recent good runs at Epsom to their credit, though on faster ground than this, and Viewpoint bounced back to form with a win a Nottingham earlier this month and is only 3lb higher today. Honeymead is well handicapped but has been most disappointing.
