    Verdict

    Carlovian won last year’s renewal and recent form, that includes a win at Ayr, suggests he’ll make another bold bid. Emily Goldfinch won nicely at Yarmouth a week ago but an earlier poor effort in one of these events doesn’t boost confidence while Arcanista has been thereabouts over 6f recently and is preferred to stablemate Foie Gras. Space War slips further down the weights but CHAMPAGNE BOB escapes a penalty for winning an apprentice’s race at Newbury last week and he gets the vote having also won an amateurs’ race over track and trip last season.
