Verdict

Phar Again has been in good form over 2m5f around here this term and Tommy Phelan's claim will aid his cause today. But the eight-year-old struggles to get home over this longer trip and is unlikely to provide much in the way of value. Woodmore's C&D third was a step in the right direction but Rash Moment is worth taking on after a lay-off. Cesium has been below his best so far this term, but Tom George's stable is in much better form now than earlier in the campaign and it would be no surprise to see the top weight run well. However, he has a lot to find to reverse recent Huntingdon running with WILLANDRICH, who will enjoy this quicker ground and gets the vote.
