Verdict

Undercover Brother finished a long way ahead of Villa Tora when scoring over track and trip last month. But he’s penalised for that success and that should hand the advantage to CAMACHO CHIEF. The latter just missed out when beaten a short-head over course and distance last time and can go one better. Spirit Power is the first of several Joseph O’Brien runners on the card but he’s had five starts without success in Ireland while Situation showed a big improvement on his latest start and Corton Lass finished closer here last time.
