Verdict

SKATE has the most obvious claims having run well on his last couple of outings, particularly when runner-up at Windsor last time. He was four lengths clear of the rest on that occasion and can open his account in this. Mercury finished a lot closer at Carlisle and makes more appeal than Shipwright and Rainbow Orse, who both finished down the field in the same race at Kempton last month. Yazan is out of a prolific mare and Storytale is related to the useful Listed winner Rosa Grace among others.
