This looks anybody's race with so many open to improvement. Darnathean has won over 6f here and has claims on his reappearance along with Lingfield maiden winner Four Better. Tenbridge has crept up the weights after a series of placed efforts, while Berlusca and Sunny Side Up haven't been disgraced off higher marks since last year's 6f victories. Frock and Prince Gabrial are handicap debutants who could also figure in the finish though the speculative vote goes to the proven winner WHIPCRACKAWAY. He's upped in class after winning over a mile here last month on his first start in a handicap and there should be more to come from him.
