Verdict

It may be asking a lot of Englishtown to recapture his best form at the age of 11 and he returns from a break here. Chris Bealby's stable is in the midst of a good run of form so it would be no surprise to see Marie De Laufon add to her Towcester win but we'll stick with the hat-trick seeking EXECUTIVE'S HALL. He may not have beaten much at Hexham and Cartmel last month but won both times with plenty in hand and most of his rivals here have plenty to prove at present. Nesnaas is often placed but hasn't won for two years while Hoar Frost has been well beaten since finishing second at Sedgefield in April.
