Verdict

SOLAR IMPULSE launched a successful raid on France a couple of weeks ago and was only beaten a length by Double W's at Warwick earlier. Ruth Jefferson’s top weight idled in front that day but Ian Williams’ charge didn’t get the clearest of runs in the closing stages and is fancied to reverse the form on 7lb better terms. Double W's may also struggle to confirm Stratford running with Champagne At Tara on worse terms with the pair holding Mcgroarty on that run. Chirico Vallis has struggled in handicaps to date and faces a tough task returning from a break.
