Verdict

Solis was second to Corky's Dancer over track and trip five weeks ago and looks to have place claims again this afternoon, though is probably high enough in the weights at present. Combustible Kate had form over this trip on fast ground in Ireland but Whatsabillion was beaten in a seller at Newton Abbot last month and is unlikely to far much better here. AHHDEHKEN won in a better grade at Perth in April and it's worth taking a chance that he'll handle the quicker surface off only a 4lb higher mark. Saddlers Mot stepped up on his Wetherby victory when fourth here last time and looks the pick of the remainder.
