Verdict

Kheley may benefit from a step back up in trip after being placed over 5f twice here recently, while Meydan Style goes in the opposite direction having finished second on his last three starts over 7f. Tenancy and Itsthursdayalready remain in need of some respite from the handicapper so the vote goes to NOVAY ESSJAY. He bounced back to form with a win at Wolverhampton last month and is still on a lower mark than when landing a double at this track last year.
