Verdict

Laith Alareen is of immediate interest in search of the hat-trick and must be respected with regular pilot Jane Elliott aboard. However, he does go up in grade now and is over a stone higher than when scoring two starts back. Liquid continues to disappoint so is best watched and Gamesome would also be one to note at his best but seems locked in a struggle for consistency. Iconic Knight is going the right way and should give another competitive account after a cosy Newbury success but KINGSTREET LADY remains in admirably consistent form, was only narrowly denied at Carlisle latest and receives weight all round, not to mention the 5lb claim of Harrison Shaw.
