Verdict

Another big field for a low grade handicap. Lake Shore Drive merits serious consideration on his latest third at Doncaster, though that was over 3m which appears to be his best trip. However, he is still preferred to inconsistent stablemate Drive On Locky. MASTER BURBIDGE recorded his only win on the Flat at Lingfield a year ago. He was placing for the first time over hurdles when second over this sort of trip at Wetherby and will be fancied to go one better today. Flow With Eve was fourth over course and distance last time but Distant Sound has proved hard to place.
