SECRETINTHEPARK hinted at a revival in a better race than this last week at Haydock and has been dropped a massive 5lb since. He’s not won in three years but hasn’t had much racing in that time and could outclass these. Quantum Dot and Edged Out are both standing dishes here and the former has won two of his last three so has to go on the short-list. Major Valentine is plummeting down the handicap but Broadhaven Honey is edging up the weights again after near-misses here and at Bath.
