Verdict

FREE STONE HILL has been progressing nicely this season and could easily be coming here on a five-time bar a couple of head-bobbers going against him last month. He's up another 4lb but may still have more to offer and can get back to winning ways. Coeur Tantre was backed to win on stable debut here recently and didn't disappoint with an all-the-way success, he should again go well under his penalty. Peruvien Bleu and Treasure The Ridge make most appear from the remainder.
