Verdict

This looks wide-open but recent winners Naples Bay and Drop Kick Murphi go on the short-list. Aguerooo, however, does all of his winning on the all-weather having managed just one place in 11 runs on Turf. Whitecrest still pops up occasionally in races like this while First Excel’s second at Catterick puts him in the picture. EPONINA ran well at the weights in a Redcar seller last time. She is 0-12 but appears to handle all types of surface and Lewis Edmunds’ claim is a plus in a poor handicap. Lucky Lodge does his winning on Tapeta and over another furlong nowadays.
