Verdict

Poker School showed good form in the winter but lost his way in the spring and has questions to answer after a poor run at Haydock last time. Days Of Heaven is bidding for his fourth win in a row but looks handicapped to the hilt based on what he’s achieved so far, and both Henryville and Casino Markets also appear to be on stiff marks. Cup Final has been running well in novice races but this looks a tough start in handicaps while Viens Chercher has questions to answer after running poorly over course and distance last month. In a race full of improving young chasers, preference is for EARTHMOVES, who has come on steadily over fences for Peter Bowen and showed plenty of fight when staying on to win a decent race over course and distance last time. The lightly raced Alcala didn’t achieve much when winning at Newton Abbot last month but looks a likely improver, as does I'dliketheoption who won well here in May. They are lively each-way prospects along with the consistent Shelford.
