Verdict

Martyn Meade's yard has just got going again after a break and RISE HALL can continue the resurgence. A son of Frankel, he returned to action in April and comfortably landed a Nottingham handicap so a 6lb rise could be underestimating his ability. Leroy Leroy stepped up to this trip for the first time at Redcar and ran very well without quite getting to Al Muffrih, who was conceding 12lb. Deja is on a four-timer and the fact that he hasn't run since October is no concern as he was off for over a year before scoring at Chester in September though this is a step-up in grade off 9lb higher than his latest success. Finniston Farm battled on when all looked lost at Haydock and is just 2lb higher while Setting Sail, a maiden winner at Goodwood in September, has run well in two tough handicaps since returning with a victory at Wolverhampton.
