Verdict

PETROL finished ahead of Naburn over course and distance last time and that pair may end up fighting this one out. The former scored on the all-weather in March and is fancied to confirm running on the same terms with Alan Swinbank's charge. El Bravo was still well beaten when third at Musselburgh last month and Kyllachykov has something to prove having landed a double at Wolverhampton in January over shorter trips. By contrast, Petella has done all her winning over 2m while Dorry K remains badly out of sorts despite slipping down the weights.
