CONKERING HERO landed a double over today’s trip with a recent win at Chelmsford. He scored with any amount in hand and 6lb extra is unlikely to prevent Joseph Tuite’s charge from going in again. Galileo's Spear has slid down the weights this year and it won’t be long before he’s winning again while Cray and Counterfeiter were both placed over today’s distance on their latest starts. Penny Poet is upped in class today while Contented has won over hurdles but has shown little in three starts on the Flat so far.
