Boychick won again at Chelmsford yesterday and would have to be respected if turned out again, but recent 1m2f winner Black Hole Sun has something to prove over this longer trip judged on a couple of previous efforts. At the prices, GOODBY INHERITENCE is preferred having slipped down the weights and going close in both starts at the end of last year. He finished close behind Bamako Du Chatelet over today’s distance at Lingfield last time and the latter has won again since. The Ginger Berry is looking to end a long losing run stretching back to 2014, while Runaiocht has proved best over shorter trips so far.
