Verdict

The step up in trip and quicker surface proved ideal for FREE OF CHARGE (NAP) here last month and he is fancied to shrug off a 7lb higher mark to double his tally. Bridal Suite arrives off the back of a victory at Fontwell and is another for whom better ground seems a pre-requisite. Kudu Shine is pretty much exposed but the top weight has place claims with Mr Cardle turning in a shocker when favourite at Southwell and Horsted Valley proving a disappointment. The mare Triumph Davis also needs more.
