Verdict

Sam Spade is dropped back in distance after failing to make his mark over 1m2f here on his comeback. He should finish closer but has HIDDEN LINK to beat. The latter scored by three lengths at Lingfield last week and can shrug off a penalty and follow-up in this company. Echo Brava posted a better effort at Lingfield last time without threatening the winner but still makes more appeal than Otto The First and Duchess Of Dreams, who continues to slip down the weights without showing any improvement.
