Verdict

Improvement is expected from Banks And Braes however a safer bet may be EDWARD WHYMPER who ran well at Kempton just six days ago. Mark Thompkins' Bahamian Bounty colt is yet to win in eight starts however he ran his best race to date at Kempton last time out. This longer trip should be within his reach and a bold bid is expected from a fair draw. Kathindi should appreciate the longer trip and is one to watch in the betting after a break, Al Khimaya knows how to win but he has been doing it at a lesser level, whilst this is a big drop in class for Mnarani and the stable are in fair form after their strangles scare. New Christmas has had an eventful career to date but this colt should be a player now stepped up in trip for this handicap debut, If I Were A Boy is consistent if ultimately hard to win with, whilst blinkers are tried on Roybuoy who needs to improve. An open nursery where preference is for Edward Whymper.
