Verdict

It will be interesting to see if Philip Kirby can coax a success out of the frustrating Here Now And Why, who blew away the cobwebs recently when finishing in mid-division at Catterick. He needs absolutely everything to drop his way but has gone well here in the past, though no win in his last 20 starts rather tells the story. He remains an each-way option, however, but Greenhead High and Roy's Legacy have both looked much better on artificial surfaces to date. The one who could step up notably on previous efforts is IGGY. The four-year-old only has four starts to his name and went well enough on his first outing for eight months when third at Wolverhampton just eight days ago. Further progress would see him right in the firing line.
