In depth

Verdict

This is even less attractive than the first division. Hard Toffee has won a couple of times at Chelmsford but has not been in the same form recently. The lightly-raced Arabian King has only raced once on the all-weather so far. He’s been gelded and changed stables since fifth at Chelmsford in October and there may be more to come. Attain has been a standing dish around here in the past but he’s not getting any younger so PRESENCE PROCESS is preferred as he wasn’t beaten over track and trip at the start of the month and can’t get much lower in the weights.
