Verdict

BROCKFIELD is hard to win with but has a good chance here. Runner-up in three of his last four starts, this looks easier than his last week's second to Landaman at Beverley and Mel Brittain's charge gets the nod. Cosmic Moon, The Lodge Road and Valantino Oyster all have something to find with the selection on recent running but Another For Joe wasn't disgraced in fourth on his recent comeback at Ayr and is closely matched with fifth-placed Retreat Content. Dean Iarracht makes most appeal of the remainder after a better effort over a longer trip here last week.
