Verdict

KEEP CALM's victory over a mile in heavy ground at Yarmouth last month suggests today's longer trip will be within his compass. Richard Hannon's charge gets the vote to follow-up. This is tougher than the seller Rakticate won at Nottingham when Unidexter was beaten five lengths in second but Gabrial The Boss ran well at Kempton last time and has solid claims. The lightly-raced Flying Tempo has scope for further progress having finished runner-up on his handicap debut last time and he could prove another danger.
