Verdict

Stringsofmyheart needs things his own way up front but we will side with him to take advantage of this drop in class. Colditz and Patavian make it to the shortlist. The selection won well at Pontefract on his penultimate start but then disappointed next time out. Dee Valley Boy is the only horse in the lineup who has shown an aptitude for front running before but the feeling is that William Haggas's Stringsofmyheart may get a soft lead and from there he would be hard to peg back. Patavian looks an obvious danger given his aptitude for this course. He warrants plenty of respect but in truth it was a weak maiden that he won two starts back. Colditz drops in grade and David Barker's gelding will need to rediscover some of his decent 2006 form is he is to win today given his woeful recent efforts. Attila's Peintre looks the pick of Pat Haslam's pair and as the most unexposed he warrants a check in the betting, however Stringsofmyheart gets the confident nomination.
