Verdict

ACAPULCO BAY won over 1m4f on the Flat at Chepstow earlier this month and followed up here four days later over timber. He's flying at present and useful 5lb claimer Robert Williams keeps the partnership intact - another victory beckons off his current mark. Sky Calling is also at the right end of the handicap and may be on the way back. She finished well ahead of Dalmo at Worcester last time. Several of the others are returning from a break and Quinsman was pulled up here on his latest start so Royal Opera, who has been in decent form on the level, looks best of the rest.
