Huge fields are clearly the order of the day and this is another difficult puzzle for punters to solve. Semeen is a possible improver near the foot of the weights but the 10-year-old Laconicos could struggle under his penalty. CALCULATED RISK has a bit more to than when successful at Doncaster but is going the right way and has only had three runs so far this year. A follow-up may be on the cards as Somemothersdohavem, by contrast, is having his 15th start of the campaign and has been racing over longer trips lately. Spey Song, possibly unlucky when runner-up to Candycakes over C&D last month, should be thereabouts, however, while the drop in trip could help Hawaana's cause.
