Verdict

BILLY NO NAME was second in a higher-grade race at Wincanton in April and should have the class to land this. The drop in distance is a bit of a worry, as is a recent lay-off, but he gets 14lb from Southwell winner Experimentalist not taking into account Alan Johns' 10lb claim. Golanova and Imperial Stargazer both have ability and are capable of going close in a race of this nature but it's difficult to make a strong case for any of the remainder on what they've shown so far.
