Hero's Story is well worth a market check at the foot of the weights as he dips his toe into handicap company for the first time whilst Yorkshireman is hard to assess, having taken a second successive 3f hike in trip. The market should reflect stable expectations of his ability at this longer distance. El Massivo has hardly beaten a rival in his past two starts but would be a player here if returning to the level of previous efforts. However, he is hard to support on the back of those recent disappointments and MISS TIGER LILY rates a far safer option. The generally reliable Dunlop filly stays further than this but is progressing steadily with her racing and can go in again off topweight, having stayed on strongly to oblige on the Turf course here latest.
