Verdict

Charlie O’Shea partnered last year’s winner and has a decent chance on TEA TIME FRED this time round. The latter was in contention for a long way at Stratford on his latest start but faded badly in the closing stages and can go close over this shorter trip. Salto Chisco moves in the opposite direction having been thereabouts over 2m recently but Southfield Torr has lost his way since placing at Taunton in November. Cousin Khee has been racing on the Flat for a while now though was narrowly beaten in this in 2017 and can race off a similar mark today but Bouggietopieces last won over timber way back in 2014.
