Verdict

Charlie Longsdon's team is in such good form that it would be no surprise to see a big run from Long Wave, who is probably better than he's shown so far. Advisor showed a glimpse of his old form at Worcester last time while El Toreros and Forever Waining should be a factor at this level. Inside Knowledge looked to be going nowhere until popping up at a big price over course and distance earlier this month and may find a 6lb rise restrictive so we'll take a chance on KUSADASI. Fitness is rarely a problem for a Pipe horse and, having shown progress over the winter, the eight-year-old can finally get his head in front here.
