Verdict

Alfasonic, The Last Cast and Victory Gunner are the three to look at here and the testing ground may suit The Last Cast who can go one better than a runner up spot last time. Twice a winner in novice events last season, Alfasoonic won decisively last time, having been pulled up on his re-appearance. A seven pound rise in the ratings may not be enough to stop him and he is respected. Victory Gunner needed a real stamina test to score last time and he may need further than this and is taken on after an eleven pound hike in the weights. The Last Cast's last win came at Uttoxeter two years ago on testing ground, and winless since, he ran his best race for some time when finishing a close second here last time. He has been harshly raised seven pounds for finishing second but he has conditions to suit and The Last Cast can land this prize.
