Verdict

Ballywatt has been knocking on the door and should be thereabouts again here after losing out narrowly at Hereford 12 days ago. Red Rouble won over 3m here before finishing second at Cheltenham and is another for the short-list while it would be no surprise to see a big run from the returning Circus of Dreams with his yard in good form and the lightly-raced Baileys Concerto looks to be on an upward curve, though has been done no favours by the handicapper. Master Milan likes soft ground but disappointed when favourite at Lingfield last month and was pulled up when GLOBAL FLYER won at Huntingdon in April. Caroline Bailey's gelding drops in grade today after a remote third at Fakenham and can recapture the winning thread back on a winning mark.
