Breaking well to obtain a useful early racing position is likely to prove necessary in such a large-field sprint handicap. Wotadoll did just that when making all at Windsor last time on just a second start for her new yard and another attacking ride is anticipated off a feasible 3lb higher mark. Red Tycoon and Jaganory, both course and distance winners, are closely matched on recent running but PAPA DELTA is preferred to both as he's not had the best of luck in running on recent starts whilst still performing with credit. He has a leading chance if the cards drop right here. Harry Beau, Mansfield and recent scorer Fantasy Justifier are all respected in a wide-open affair.
