Verdict

Ocean Legend, Arachnophobia and Seek the Fair Land make the shortlist here with Ocean Legend taken to continue his winning run. Arachnophobia has been consistent and this is his optimum trip. He won in game style last time, and that was his second win in five starts, but a rise of 6lbs may be prohibitive. Seek the Fair Land has been going well of late, a winner two outings ago, and he stayed on well in defeat last time to be beaten less than two lengths. Ocean Legend has been in terrific form, and although he races off an eleven pound higher mark than when scoring last time, he is in great heart, and won on his last visit here. Ocean Legend can score again.
