There isn't too many in this field that have proven stamina for this trip so given he has stayed at least this far TRANSMISSION is given marginal preference in this handicap ahead of Shadowtime while Woodsley House looks nice value for each-way players. His runners-up placing behind a subsequent winner last time when staying on really well is a good bit of form in favour of our pick, who finds his mark up by just two pounds for that run, and he will at least stay this stamina test. Shadowtime was expected to go better last time butkeeps falling short off this mark. He also has staying power to prove and the ground conditions may need to dry for him to do himself justice. Racing off three pounds below his last winning mark Woodsley House can recapture a bit of form here over a trip that should suit while Moon Lightning looks to be waiting for a favour from at assessor but will have every help in the saddle from an in-form jockey. Stamina maybe the key here and that plays into the engine of Transmission.
