Verdict

The ground is riding soft again and that will suit FLEXIBLE FLYER in this. He opened his account at Warwick in April with a subsequent winner behind and can follow-up on his handicap debut. Nassua Storm won his maiden at Kempton three weeks ago and has yet to race in soft going, likewise dual Lingfield winner Emmuska. Amadeus Wolfe Tone won in testing ground at Chepstow last year though he hasn't raced since October and Loyal Master is another who acts on today's surface and he could figure. Dubious Escapade is not without a chance but Uprise will need to improve on his form to date.
