Verdict

STALLONE has plenty of weight to shoulder but produced a career-best hold-up performance to score rather cosily at Nottingham just three days and can follow up here. Richard Spencer is not one to overface inmates and the Dandy Man gelding will have no ground issues having scored in the heavy in the Midlands. Stay Forever is unproven under these conditions and has been running exclusively on synthetic surfaces this year but both previous runs on Turf have been more than solid and she looks dangerous dropped to a mark of 65. Jungle Juice is consistent enough but keep a very close eye on Alicia Darcy as she makes her debut for the thriving Watson team.
