Verdict

Ashva and Cruiser are similar in that both scored over C&D earlier this year but have failed to figure since. Megalala needs a longer trip as he proved when scoring over 1m2f at Windsor last month so this looks a good opportunity for IBTAHAJ to follow up last week's victory over track and trip and complete the hat-trick. He has a penalty but won by three lengths and looks the one to beat on that evidence. Hefner and Snow Trooper both arrive in good form with preference for the latter over today's trip while C&D winner Prince Of Burma is not easily dismissed as he drops down a grade.
