Verdict

Vinstar finally got off the mark over 2m1f here in March but was beaten again on his next start at Carlisle and looks a risky proposition here giving plenty of weight to his rivals. Narcissist's latest fourth at Wetherby was an improvement while Artifice Sivola appreciated the step up to 2m4f at Fakenham and was only beaten a short-head. DANBY'S LEGEND races from out of the handicap but isn't necessarily badly treated. He was racing off a mark of 95 when third at Doncaster in February and repeat of that run may well suffice.
