Verdict

Domtaline reverts to fences for the first time since October but would have every chance here on his best form. Saints And Sinners is starting to come down the weights but prefers softer ground and PURPLE 'N GOLD is more interesting. He made no impression in a more competitive affair at Kempton on Monday but did finish ahead of Vikekhal at Ascot last month and was then second on good going at Chepstow. Big Casino still looks out of sorts but Going Concern has the ability to figure in a race like this and looks a better bet than Hepijeu and Ballybogey.
