Verdict

Kabrit finished ahead of Hidden Depths when third to a subsequent winner at Hereford earlier this month. Layerthorpe won over track and trip last season and is only a pound higher. Bomber's Moon is 0-14 but ran better than expected at Uttoxeter and should strip fitter here while Glengar represents last year’s winning yard. DRUMREAGH (NAP) was only headed close home at Uttoxeter trying 3m for the first time. That form is working out well and he can defy a 2lb rise to open his account with Tango du Roy’s recent second at Exeter coming in an amateurs’ race.
