Verdict

SOOPACAL returned to winning ways in a claimer over C&D last month. He'll find this tougher, but has won off a higher mark in handicap company before and is taken to follow up. Bookiesindex Boy has never registered back-to-back wins and may struggle to confirm recent running with Where's Reiley, La Capriosa and Sleepy Blue Ocean. The latter is fancied to come out best of that quartet today, while Incomparable finished ahead of Lucky Mellor, Nollaig Shona and Fashion Icon when going close at Wolverhampton recently and can make the frame once again.
