Verdict

Club House is upped a further 8lb after scoring here last time and drops back down in trip. Hillbilly Boy and Seek The Fair Land are recent winners in plating races while The Happy Hammer may have done his winning for the year with last month's victory over track and trip. Fanoos has leading claims with a good effort at Kempton likely to have blown any cobwebs away, but AFKAR should go close in this grade with a repeat of his close-up third to Shaolin in January so Clive Brittain's charge gets the nod.
