Verdict

A moderate but competitive handicap in which last year's winner Highwayman looks certain to make a bold bid on a 17lb lower mark after a much better run at Carlisle. THREE CASTLES didn't show much on Tapeta last season but it's been a different matter since switching to Turf, returning with a good run at Musselburgh before scoring at Carlisle. He's penalised for that last victory but there's more to come and a quick double looks a distinct possibility. Hector's Here was well supported at Wetherby after a promising run there but didn't appear to enjoy the fast ground and can do better. Allux Boy hasn't been beaten far in his last two on Turf after scoring at Wolverhampton but could be a few pounds high while dual hurdles winner Millie The Minx could find this on the short side unless the ground turns heavy.
