Verdict

Archie Watson won last year’s renewal and ABOVE looks to have leading claims in this. He landed the odds with the minimum of fuss at Chelmsford on his debut and entries at the highest level later in the season suggest he’s held in high regard. Swinley Forest looks the biggest threat on a recent third over track and trip given Broken Rifle failed to show much progress on his latest outing at Newmarket. The remainder with experience make no appeal and breeding suggest both newcomers may do better over further.
