In depth

Verdict

A recent winner at Lingfield when ahead of Zipedeedodah, Picansort’s only win on Turf so far came over track and trip last year but he’s 6lb higher today. Secret Millionaire won over 6f here a fortnight ago and has every chance but ROYAL BAJAN is just preferred. The latter was only beaten a head over course and distance last week, when ahead of Whitecrest, and Bob Cowell’s charge can go one better in this racing off the same mark. Ada Lovelace is a dual course winner but remains 6lb higher than her latest win in June last year.
