Seven of the 11 entries have won over the course and distance but it's one of those who hasn't, MASTER BOND (NAP), that gets the vote. David O'Meara's charge is on a hat-trick and, with just a 4lb rise for his latest success and his young rider using his claim, can continue in a winning vein. Noodles Blue Boy has a 6lb penalty for last week's Beverley victory but the 11 times winner can never be discounted while Space Artist has a very good strike-rate of 5-16 and arrives in winning form. Singeur hasn't won for two years but has dropped to his lowest mark for a very long time and could go well at a fair price.
