Verdict

Soft going will be no problem for Clubland but a 6lb penalty could be. He beat Fenella Fudge at Doncaster last week and had KEY AMBITION back in third at Nottingham in May. The latter re-opposes on better terms after scoring at the same track last month and Justin Newman's 5lb claim will further help in making up the three length deficit with Clubland. Fathsta also carries a heavy burden on the back of Monday's victory at Wolverhampton while recent Salisbury runner-up Bajan Bear would prefer faster ground as would We Have A Dream. Captain Scooby is a previous winner on today's surface and could go well.
