    Verdict

    There is little between Hartswell, Arc Royal and Wahash on handicap ratings. Hartswell gets first-time headgear and Arc Royal drops in class but Wahash could have been better drawn. So could RAY’S THE MONEY for that matter but Michael Bell’s charge still gets the vote on account of his second to Lockheed at Goodwood last month given the latter went on to place in the Acomb at York earlier this week. Double Touch steps up in trip after returning a losing favourite at Redcar and is preferred to the newcomer Zacchetto.
