Verdict

STANDING OVATION only won by a neck at Exeter last week and has a 7lb penalty to carry, but this looks a much weaker race and it will be a surprise if David Pipe's charge doesn't double his tally over fences here. Maid Of Silk was pulled up at Fontwell when last seen but Glenwood Prince could be open to improvement and could have a fitness advantage over the likes of Milosam, Zava River, Tothemoonandback and Ballyhilty Bridge.
