Verdict

Top Cop has been running at this level since February but has failed to win, a remark that also applies to the veteran Triple Dream though he's dropped an incredible amount in the ratings over the past year. Catalinas Diamond is 8lb higher than when scoring here in June though she did run well here last time. CONSISTANT won a Class 5 handicap at Leicester and, with just a 4lb rise to contend with, can go in again. Babyfact gained her only victory over the track and trip and is running well enough to get into the frame again. Reginald Claude is having his 78th start and has won nine times but has never run here before.
