    Verdict

    It could pay to stick with EBRAAM here. His two recent victories have been in claimers over the minimum trip on Polytrack but he has won his fair share over 6f and handles this surface. He is difficult to oppose in his current frame of mind. Abbondanza won well in similar company at Wolverhampton last time but failed to figure at this track before that, while Takajan and Punching have a bit to find at these weights. Harlech Castle and Hard Rock City are dropped in class after recent poor efforts.
