Verdict

Mistariva has a decent pedigree and would be interesting if attracting market support. Delgany Demon was only beaten a length at Warwick earlier this month while Flashyfrank ran his best race so far at Wincanton three weeks ago but FRED LE MACON has to be the selection. His latest third at Newbury came in a much stronger bumper and the way he was staying on at the finish suggests he'll relish the uphill finish here. Whiskey Chaser started favourite at Uttoxeter in the spring, but he was well beaten and may need more time while Coinage has a preferred engagement at Sedgefield.
