Verdict

Take It To The Max has struggled for form since returning from a mid-season break while High Office has more on his plate than when scoring readily on soft ground at Yarmouth and this may present SUBMARINER with the perfect opportunity to resume winning ways. He's been comfortably held in competitive races since winning three of his first four starts but has slipped back down to a winning mark and may be able to land a race where he'll face fewer progressive rivals. Sirvino remains of interest despite a below par run at Doncaster whilst the admirable Fastnet Storm will make a bold bid to make every yard and Tom Tate's runner has been given every chance by the handicapper who has left his mark unchanged despite two sound efforts on his most recent outings.
