Verdict

Ardlui won last year's renewal and is not easily overlooked racing off the same mark today. Mubaraza also has a shout on his third in the Northumberland Plate in June while Esteaming should get involved if lasting home after winning over 1m2f at Newcastle recently. Sizzler is another stepping up in trip having ended last season with a double over 1m6f and beat Chocala on one of those occasions. Be Perfect and Hunting Ground won over 2m1f at Wolverhampton earlier this year but both were well beaten in a conditions race at Lingfield on Good Friday. Prolific hurdler BAYAN has just the one previous win on the Flat but ran a big race in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham last month. Gordon Elliott's charge may well be up to landing this off his current mark.
