Verdict

An impossible-looking handicap which any number of these could win if on a going day. Damika won at Nottingham on Thursday, for which he is penalised, and Paramour comes here off the back of a win on soft ground at Newmarket. Solar Spirit is in good form but this may be too tough for Newcastle scorer Head Space while Shahzan disappointed at Haydock after winning over C&D. BERTIEWHITTLE is probably worth another chance eased in grade as he likes soft ground and attracted significant market support at Newbury last month when unable to find a gap when required. Lutine Bell finished ahead of him that day but the placing may be reversed here. Mass Rally often runs well in this type of race and could reward each-way support.
