Verdict

Something has clearly gone amiss with Coda Agency, who is well treated on his old form, and stablemate Award Winner makes more appeal under McCoy. Lady Ida could be interesting in a first-time visor, while Tarateeno is at the right end of the handicap. Plumpton second Regal Brook tackles handicap company for the first time and The Hudnalls is likely to be staying on when others have cried enough but we'll take a chance on the lightly-raced FIVEWAYS. This represents a drop in grade for Lawney Hill's dual bumper winner and his breeding suggests this will be his best trip.
