A tricky finale as four of these were well backed last time. Blazing Field, Kleitomachos, Hawridge Star and Sunny Future will all be out to recoup losses and Handles For Forks and Maydream are both recent winners who found a higher rating too much to handle on their latest start. SANSILI has been in good form over hurdles since winning a small race at Chepstow at the end of May. He still has a bit of scope on the Flat and can Darren Egan's claim will help his cause here so he gets the nod. Mohanad could reach the frame but O Ma Lad has his fair share of weight and it's a long time since Raslan was in the winner's enclosure.
