Verdict

Aside from a below-par effort on soft ground earlier this month, Goal has been holding his form well and scored at Wolverhampton last week. He looks likely to go close again despite a penalty, while Dr Red Eye also has to come into the reckoning dropping back to a more suitable trip. However, a chance is taken that a drop in grade and first-time blinkers will hand the initiative to CARROWBEG, who wasn't beaten far when fifth in better company over C&D last time. Save The Bees won a lesser contest here recently but is open to further improvement and could figure.
