Verdict

Plenty with chances in a tight claimer including Opus Maximus, though he was engaged to run here yesterday. SPINNING RIDGE arrives in arguably the best form having scored at Kempton before going close again over C&D a week ago. Ron Harris' charge is just preferred to dual C&D winner Ajdaad and Saharia, who won a seller at this track before a decent third in handicap company last time. Dream Of Fortune and Sky Diamond are others to consider judged on their best form at this level.
