Verdict

Miss Topsy Turvy won over C&D in July last year but hasn't raced since second on her reappearance over 1m6f at Salisbury in May. Old-timer Granston was only a length behind Party Line at Beverley last month but may find a few of these too quick for him nowadays while Stormy Weather was put up 4lb after finishing second at Newcastle. Honest Deal's form is on the all-weather and both Mohawk Ridge and Noble Alan need further, while Nice Rose and Choisan have disappointed recently. GRANDILOQUENT won at Kempton and Newcastle in the spring and was returning from a break when only fifth at Newbury last month. He didn't fare badly and, presuming that run was needed, could bounce back down a grade here.
