Verdict

It's difficult to be confident about any of these but Bang Tidy and Penbryn have at least managed a win each this year. The latter arrives in much the best form of that pair after a recent second over track and trip. Glenridding finally showed a bit of improvement for his slide down the weights when finishing closer over a longer trip here last week while Unlimited, Silly Billy and Phils Wish have all been placed over course and distance recently. So has HIGH ON THE HOG, who finished third to Basle here last month and is a speculative selection to finally bring his long losing run to an end.
