In depth

Verdict

Space Ace is penalised for an earlier success at Lingfield, when Sweet Sixteen was well beaten, but Hashtagmetoo has been thereabouts recently though has something to find with INCOGNITO on today’s terms. Mick Channon’s charge may edge this with a repeat of an earlier second at Newmarket. Gladice has shown some ability having placed behind a subsequent winner at Wolverhampton last time and is preferred to Goddess Of Fire and the newcomer Decanter.
