Verdict

Save The Bees ran on well when second over a mile at Leicester on his reappearance but the drop in distance here is a worry. Divine Call was put up 6lb for winning over 6f at Warwick earlier this month but has won off today's mark on the all-weather and can't be ignored while Beautiful Day is another well treated on his form on an artificial surface, though has never won on turf. VIKING WARRIOR was beaten more than five lengths when second at Catterick but will strip fitter here and has form on a soft surface. Well drawn today, he gets the nod.
