Verdict

Nicky Henderson's team is starting to get into its stride and it would be no surprise to see Semi Colon produce a better effort in first-time blinkers. Kim Bailey's stable is also going well and South Stack arrives in good heart, though he was behind subsequent Ascot third THORESBY at Towcester last month. The bottom weight appears to have improved lately and can recapture the winning thread here. Ski Sunday's recent form figures don't inspire much confidence but he's been taking on better opposition than this and could easily play a part.
