Verdict

SHIPBOARD ROMANCE is the only horse coming in to this contest with any sort of winning form, although Monkhair and Aggravation were not disgraced in their last outings. Shipboard Romance won at Uttoxeter over two miles on good ground earlier in the month beating General Smith by one and three-quarter lengths. On the back of this respectable performance and on conditions that suit, another decent run can be expected. Aggravation is worth watching in this race and may grab a place after a nice hurdling effort at Market Rasen last time out. A commendable challenge by Monkhair on good to firm ground at Towcester when beaten six lengths by Ruby Crown may suggest there is more to offer in today's race. Space Telescope comes from a well regarded yard and Henry Hook has won over the distance before. In a tricky test for the last race of the card our preference is for Shipboard Romance.
