Verdict

CELTIC MANOR justified favouritism in a novice event at Windsor but is stepping up a furlong here on much different ground. However, he’s not been asked a stiff question on his handicap debut and has plenty of scope. Havana Ooh Na Na has been racing over longer distances but has won twice at Wolverhampton and conditions could bring stamina into play today. Mr Buttons and Moveonup have both been knocking on the door while Socru was a course a distance winner in April and had excuses last time at Nottingham.
