In depth

Verdict

Laura Hurley is double-handed and Orang Outan and Moscow Mule can both get involved. They are preferred in that order as the former should improve for the step up to two and a half miles but the latter is not guaranteed to do so after getting caught late on last time over the minimum trip. ARROW BARROW, one of two course and distance winners on show, looked on the upgrade when staying on stoutly to score here last time. Two and a half miles on good ground appear optimum conditions and an 8lb rise for that success is acceptable. He can follow up with Ginger's Lad, the other course and distance winner, afforded place claims off his current mark.
