Verdict

BARKSTON ASH makes most appeal in this. A winner at Ripon last month, he went close again at the same track when just failing to catch Fast Shot in a Class 2 sprint and can race off the same mark with Jason Hart's allowance taken into account. Chooseday should also go well after a good effort over 5f at Beverley but My Name Is Rio is upped 7lb chasing a hat trick after victories over track and trip and at Newcastle last time. Apricot Sky has an 11lb hike to contend with but won as he liked at Warwick and could still prove the main danger ahead of Mutafaakir and Baby Strange.
