Verdict

The defection of Top Tug leaves 14 facing the starter and not one is without a chance. Mark Johnston has won this three times in recent years and has begun the meeting in typical top form. He has a trio of entries here and last week's impressive Beverley winner Rainbow Rock may prove best of them under his penalty as he's still on a very lowly mark. Ventura Quest had no answer to Torchlighter at Newmarket but any ease in the ground would be in his favour though it's another Yorkshire raider, BRAIDLEY, who is handed the vote to reward each-way backers at a big price. He's never raced beyond a mile but has given every indication that this trip is required and his handler wouldn't be sending him on the long journey unless a big run was expected. Roseburg has done everything right so far and is now on a mark of a pattern race performer, though the expected fast ground is a concern. Arable is up 10lb for his Haydock victory but Astronereus looked very smart when landing a Newmarket maiden and makes his handicap debut from what could prove to be a lenient mark.
