    Verdict

    Carlisle second Desperados Destiny still looks a shade high in the weights but Rapid Ranger has been threatening to get his head in front for a while and Metisian has been performing with credit since winning over this trip on soft going at Doncaster in June. The extended 7f at Beverley last time was too far for GENERAL ALEXANDER but he was just beaten over this trip at Newmarket earlier and his yard has a terrific strike rate on this course with older handicappers.
