Verdict

Mick and David Easterby are responsible for almost half of this 10-strong field. Jazz Samba and Carlton And Co look the pick of the quartet but it’s likely that last month’s Salisbury winner ZAINALARAB will be a short-priced favourite as he is a half-brother to two winners over this longer trip. None of the others make much appeal.
