Verdict

Saloon has a chance on his earlier form in a claimer at York but Alubari has struggled since winning at Wolverhampton at the end of last year. Raktiman should have done better at Newbury last time and Lord Lansing has something to prove over today's longer trip. Transfer could figure despite stepping up a grade, but the vote goes to LEITZU. She wasn't beaten far at Bath on her penultimate start behind Laverre, who was landing a hat-trick, and with the runner-up having won since the form looks rock-solid.
