Verdict

Amenable won a division of this handicap last year off a similar mark and has to come into the reckoning while Victoire De Lyphar has tumbled 15lb down the weights this season and will be taking advantage soon. My Son Max scored on the Polytrack last time while Love Island, Mount Hollow and Wild Sauce are also recent winners on a faster surface. Da'Quonde is another to consider on her first start since June but the speculative vote goes to BATHWICK BEAR to end his long losing run with both trip and ground in his favour.
