Verdict

Bushel gained his only victory on Turf with his last two successes coming at Southwell. Cotton Club has been racing at a higher level and though running moderately has dropped just enough to get into this handicap so has to be respected. LOVING YOUR WORK (NAP) won a couple of handicaps at this level at Newbury last summer and is now on a lower mark. Pat Dobbs, who rode him on both occasions, is back on board for the first time subsequently and he can steer him to another victory. Onorina could find this on the short side while Tractive Effort caused a shock when scoring over the trip at Kempton in February.
