Verdict

Bravo Bravo has been running well and got his head back in front at Chepstow last time. He should be thereabouts again in this higher grade but Explained needs some help from the handicapper and Goodtoknow's fourth at Sandown suggests he's also a bit high in the weights. Market Option has had plenty of chances, as has Raduis Bleu, but Grimley Girl could be interesting if she builds on her third at Doncaster and Lovely Muck might be well treated. SILVER COMMANDER only weakened approaching the last when tried over 3m at Chepstow last time, which suggests this distance should prove ideal. Victor Dartnall's grey has only had three starts over timber and this might be his chance to get his head in front.
