Verdict

A competitive field goes to post for this handicap chase with many in form rivals in opposition including Prokofiev, Mighty Strong and Lord Maizey and we will take a chance on the last named. The six year old ran as if in need of the run when fourth behind Fasgo last time out, he is sure to strip fitter here and with more emphasis sure to be placed on stamina he is taken to score. Prokofiev rates the main danger he has won his last races in good style defeating Xaipete last time. However this looks more competitive and he may struggle under his penalty.Mighty Strong is also worthy of respect but his best form is on faster ground so for that reason he is opposed. Handyman is well weighted on his best form and is worth noting in the market. of the remainder Stars Out Tonight is weighted up to the hilt so we are happy to side with Lord Maizey.
