In depth

Verdict

Equitania won a claimer at this track last year but is penalised for a recent win at Wolverhampton. Sharaarah has the better form with a victory over course and distance last month and preferred to Silken Express, 11lb higher than her win over track and trip back in May. Royal Bajan has yet to win off a mark as high as today's and carrying 6lb extra for his recent defeat of Threes Grand at Wolverhampton and EVEN STEVENS looks a better bet. He can race off a lower mark than the latest of his six course wins and it could be his turn to come good again.
