Verdict

Alexandrakollontai won this in 2016 and scored here again in September. But he’s been beaten since and it could pay to stick with ALFRED RICHARDSON after the latter romped home by over three lengths over track and trip last month. He’s still improving given that was the highest mark he’s won off so far and John Davies’ charge can go in again. First Flight posted a better effort here last time while Elusive Heights has been thereabouts at the track of late without looking like winning and is closely matched with Pioneering. Black Isle Boy steps up to a mile for the first time and is worth a second glance now back on a winning mark.
