Verdict

Henry Candy has won this twice in the last four years so there's every chance that WHITE RUSSIAN will know what's required. She's a daughter of Sir Percy out of a Pivotal mare so should handle the soft ground and could represent a bit of value against likely favourite Magnus Maximus, the pick of Richard Hannon's two runners on breeding and jockey bookings. Dutch Romance is another newcomer to note while Extremity is probably the pick of those with experience with Maxie T disappointing when made favourite at Newcastle.
