Verdict

Opus Maximus won at Wolverhampton last week but the re-opposing Follow The Flag is weighted to reverse running. The former also has a bit to find on earlier running with Archie Rice, who is enjoying a purple patch at the moment and has the beating of Focail Maith. Aerodynamic is another with recent winning form at Wolverhampton, though he'll do well to take up his usual prominent position drawn wide today so a chance is taken on ARIYFA. She won her maiden with the minimum of fuss on last month's debut for Noel Quinlan and has plenty of scope for improvement now she's got her head in front.
