Verdict

Argyle has had a run on the all-weather since his second at Huntingdon but won’t be helped by a further 3lb rise. KALARIKA bolted up on similar going last time at Taunton. She’s been raised 8lb but a similar performance may well suffice as she is getting almost a stone from last month’s course and distance third Choix Des Armes. Ormskirk is only a couple of pounds higher than when a close third at Plumpton in February but the four-year-old Born Legend is best watched at present.
