Verdict

Soap Wars and Lujeanie look worth opposing after a break while the going could be a problem for Piscean, but Mr David and Quasi Congaree are both previous C&D winners and Expose is, contrary to his name, unexposed and probably a lot better than he showed on his reappearance at Sandown. Courageous is potentially well handicapped and has his first start for Milton Bradley, while Close To The Edge and Avonmore Star come here off the back of respective wins at Newcastle and Brighton and have to go on the short-list. A tentative vote, however, goes to CREW CUT, who had been in good form on Polytrack prior to scoring at Bath, where he overcame trouble in-running. In-form Trojan Rocket may be the pick of the remainder.
