Verdict

Zhuba has shown enough to suggest he can win an ordinary handicap and should be thereabouts if he stays the extra. Handicap debutant Tenor is interesting as his latest fourth at Warwick was his best run so far but First Sargeant didn't impress back on Turf at Windsor and Dark Templar was stepped back to 7f when a beaten favourite at Kempton last time. We'll take a chance on the fitness of RUNNINGLIKETHEWIND as there were definite signs of promise in maidens last year. He is bred to appreciate this step up in distance and his yard rarely sends one here without a chance. Two No Bids has been absent since disappointing at Nottingham in April and Exempt has gone backwards this year.
