Verdict

There's little between those in the top half of the handicap, although Doncaster winner War Spirit and Touch The Clouds appeared to improve for the soft ground on their latest starts. There was also cut in the ground when GROUNDWORKER scored at Goodwood but he'd run well on a fast surface before that so Sylvester Kirk's colt makes most appeal on that basis. Saffire Song and Hustle Bustle are winners on the all-weather but Inheritance has shown little in a couple of starts on the Polytrack so far this year.
