      In depth

      Verdict

      Samsons Son scored over a shorter trip at Windsor on his return from a lay-off and has claims here despite a 5lb rise, but Bullet Man's victory at Doncaster came back in April and he may need the outing. Praxiteles flopped on a recent trip to Ireland but has every chance on his earlier win at Ffos Las and there should be more to come from Doncaster maiden winner Gogeo. Rockfella and Time To Work are others to consider, but the vote goes to SPICE FAIR, who scored over today's trip at Sandown last time and hasn't stopped improving yet.
