Verdict

Richard Fahey has won both previous renewals including with Chapter Seven last year. The latter's half-sister, FANTACISE, represents the yard this time around and she gets the nod dropped in class on her return to action. Stablemate Khelman also has claims on last week's second over 7f at Doncaster and Mark Johnston makes a determined bid with three runners. Jockey bookings suggest Greeleys Love has the best chance of those, although Fraserburgh arrives on the back of an easy win at Southwell and Penny Rose is a dual winner over 7f. Newstead Abbey is up 9lb having landed a recent double on the Polytrack and Hiddon Coin is upped in class having won four claiming races on the all-weather this year. Carry On Sydney is preferred to London Citizen after going close on his reappearance at Kempton.
