This will be a real test of stamina and top weight could find Genever Dragon out on his handicap debut as he hasn't raced over this far. Out Of Breath's only success came on fast going as did that of MAGNA MORALIA (NAP) but the latter ran well over 1m2f on soft at Nottingham so neither trip nor ground will be a problem and Danny Tudhope can steer him home. Breguet Boy scored over the trip on good going at Redcar but didn't do as well in softer conditions at York while Newcastle runner-up Guipure hasn't proved herself on the surface or over the trip. Ambyfaeirvine has won over 6f here and returned to form on heavy going at Nottingham last week so should go well.
