In depth

Verdict

What A Steel was raised 5lb for his Cartmel success and will do well to follow up here, though he did beat Dj Milan here in May when in receipt of 8lb. Lord Redsgirth has ability but makes his debut for Lucinda Russell having left Gordon Elliott. Quito Du Tresor and Solway Sam have both had lengthy lay-offs while Glingerbank is getting a bit long in the tooth. RED HOT POKER was pulled up at Stratford last month but the trip and ground were against him. This should play more to his strengths and he could be worth another chance.
