Verdict

A tricky race to weigh up primarily due to the presence of Infanta Isabella, a very lightly-raced four-year-old who has been unplaced in France on her last two starts. She looks well treated for this handicap bow and the booking of Crowley looks significant too. She would need to be taken seriously if the market speaks well of her chance. However, there are a few battle-hardened opponents for her to overcome, of which CAMAKASI makes most appeal. Ali Stronge's gelding has dropped to a workable mark and was arguably unlucky not to make the frame when last seen at Windsor, squeezed for room late on. He's been dropped 1lb for that run and George Wood takes off a further useful 3lb. Trip and ground are fine. Red Touch also looks well treated, especially when the 5lb claim of his partner is factored in, whilst Tomahawk Kid and Flight Of Fantasy are also respected.
