Verdict

The Happy Hammer had Perfect Mission behind at Kempton in February but fell out of the stalls and unshipped his rider last time in the race won by Lord Of The Dance. The latter has since gone close again and should be in the mix while Copperwood is also capable on his day, although it's difficult to predict when that will be. He's closely matched with Kingswinford on form at Chester in September but the tentative vote goes to MAFI in this. He beat Titan Triumph when recording a double over track and trip in February and Mark Hoad's charge looks up to winning again off his current mark.
